Pos­si­ble chal­lenge for Whit­sun­day MP

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY MP Ja­son Costi­gan is one of a num­ber of MPs be­lieved to be in­cluded on a “hit list” of those who could be chal­lenged for party pre-se­lec­tion at the next State Govern­ment elec­tion.

“If some­one else wants to have a crack, bring it on," he said, in re­sponse to re­ports that New­man Govern­ment MPs had been told they would have to re-ap­ply for their po­si­tions.

“If there is a chal­lenge, then so be it be­cause that is how our party sys­tem works.” Mr Costi­gan said what­ever the out­come, he was proud to have been “a found­ing fa­ther” of the LNP in North Queens­land.

“But above all else I'm proud to rep­re­sent the good people of Whit­sun­day who were ne­glected by La­bor for two decades be­fore we came along,” he said.

“Ev­ery day we get up, we do so with the aim of stand­ing up for our com­mu­nity and mak­ing a dif­fer­ence.”
