Politicians steer clear of the DriveIt NQ rally
HAVING taking part in the DriveIt NQ rally on Sunday morning just gone, which was bringing attention to the need for funding of a driver training and motorsport precinct, it was disappointing that the three currently elected representatives – and I use the word representative loosely – were conspicuous by their absence.
This is a disgrace with the State Government receiving millions of dollars in fines from electronic detection devices in Townsville alone. One has to wonder why all three went to ground when there was a golden opportunity to meet the electorate. DAVID THOUMINE, Cranbrook.
