Costi­gan is still on leave

Whitsunday Times - - FRONT PAGE -

MEM­BER for Whit­sun­day Ja­son Costi­gan re­mains on in­def­i­nite leave for per­sonal rea­sons.

Mr Costi­gan sought and was granted the leave by the State Gov­ern­ment’s chief whip more than two weeks ago.

A spokesper­son from the Pre­mier’s of­fice con­firmed yes­ter­day that the Mem­ber was still on leave but his of­fice in Proser­pine was still op­er­at­ing as usual.

The spokesper­son con­firmed that con­stituents could still con­tact the of­fice and that any en­quiries about port­fo­lio mat­ters could be done through the ap­pro­pri­ate min­is­te­rial of­fices.

It had been sug­gested last week that Mr Costi­gan would re­turn to work this week but that has not oc­curred as yet.

Some mem­bers of the Lib­eral Na­tional Party were shocked two weeks ago when told of his leave.

This all comes as rum­blings con­tinue about his per­for­mance and af­ter his of­fice was al­legedly bro­ken into in re­cent weeks.

Mr Costi­gan has been un­avail­able for com­ment.
