Some home truths about Camp­bell ‘‘ Can Do’’ New­man

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

IN re­ply to the mem­ber for Thuringowa and his com­ments ( TB, Wed­nes­day 22), I would like to say that last time I checked, Anna Bligh is from south-east Queens­land and is the sitting Mem­ber for South Bris­bane and has demon­strated lit­tle or no sup­port for the peo­ple any where out­side the south-east cor­ner, let alone North Queens­land, Townsville and Thuringowa.

The La­bor mem­ber for Thuringowa claims to work for the peo­ple of Thuringowa and North Queens­land and is Anna Bligh’s man in the North, but he does not seem con­cerned with the prac­ti­cal is­sues of his own con­stituents as we have not yet had one bit of road in­fra­struc­ture put in the area, even though he is the Min­is­ter for Mai n Roads. What gives him the right to say that ‘‘ Can Do’’ Camp­bell New­man ‘‘ doesn’t know the North or un­der­stand the re­gions’’? He and his boss, Anna Bligh, stand ac­cused of the very same crime that they ac­cuse Mr New­man of and Mr New­man hasn’t even been given a chance to show his in­ter­est in this great State.

Camp­bell New­man un­der­stands the needs of com­mu­ni­ties in terms of in­fra­struc­ture as he is an en­gi­neer by pro­fes­sion. He has lived in re­gional Queens­land for a decade, work­ing in agri­cul­ture and min­ing in­dus­tries. I am con­fi­dent he will give North Queens­land the due at­ten­tion it de­serves.
