Lazarus on Team

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

RUGBY league gi­ant Glenn Lazarus may no longer be on the field, but he’s reg­is­tered a team.

Sen­a­tor Lazarus’s po­lit­i­cal party, the Glenn Lazarus Team, has been for­mally reg­is­tered with the Aus­tralian Elec­toral Com­mis­sion. The for­mer Palmer United Party sen­a­tor said he would set up a re­gional of­fice in Cairns, seek to build a mem­ber­ship base and iden­tify po­ten­tial can­di­dates for the fed­eral elec­tion due around Septem­ber 2016.

His pol­icy fo­cus ar­eas will be bol­ster­ing the Queens­land econ­omy as well as im­prov­ing ru­ral and re­gional ser­vices. He’ll also be con­tin­u­ing to cam­paign to give land­hold­ers the right to say no to coal seam gas de­vel­op­ment.
