Politi­cians steer clear of the DriveIt NQ rally

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

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.
