No One Na­tion ri­val for Miller

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

QUEENS­LAND One Na­tion Leader Steve Dick­son has an­nounced the party won’t run a can­di­date against La­bor’s Jo- Ann Miller at the next state elec­tion.

For­mer cabi­net min­is­ter Ms Miller, re­con­test­ing the seat of Bun­damba in Ip­swich, is head­ing the in­quiry into Black Lung dis­ease in coal min­ers. One Na­tion was yet to fill the Bun­damba can­di­dacy af­ter pre­vi­ous party can­di­date Shan Ju Lin was dumped in Jan­uary for mak­ing sev­eral ho­mo­pho­bic so­cial me­dia posts.

Mr Dick­son said the party had not strug­gled to find a re­place­ment can­di­date, but ul­ti­mately he didn’t want to re­move an MP do­ing good work.
