Harper takes credit for LNP’s work

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

I RE­CEIVED a flyer in the mail from Aaron Harper, who calls him­self the “new Mem­ber For Thuringowa” – he was elected al­most six months ago.

Good heav­ens, Aaron, the pre­vi­ous LNP mem­ber had al­ready es­tab­lished the ground­work for the new Up­per Ross Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

Many of the pre­vi­ous mem­ber’s projects ( ex­tra po­lice, po­lice hub, ju­ve­nile crime, lo­cal se­cu­rity) ex­ist to this day.

The flyer also tabled Aaron’s “achieve­ments”. He claims to have se­cured fund­ing for two school cross­ings. Both were ver­i­fied be­fore the elec­tion and were pro­moted by the pre­vi­ous LNP mem­ber.

He claims to have se­cured fund­ing for the Ring Road com­ple­tion. This pro­ject has been rub­ber­stamped for years. The pre­vi­ous LNP gov­ern­ment and present Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment made this pos­si­ble.

He claims to have se­cured fund­ing for the Dal­rym­ple/ Bohle bridge. This $ 5 mil­lion was left over from the Blakeys Cross­ing pro­ject and trans­ferred to the Bohle Bridge by the pre­vi­ous LNP gov­ern­ment.

Such mis­lead­ing pro­pa­ganda is not a good sign.

TOM DAR­LING­TON,
