Carmichael Mine / Ab­bot Point

While I sup­port the mine and the in­fra­struc­ture, I do not sup­port Adani (In­dia) sell­ing our coal to sell to them­selves.

I would sup­port this mine if it were Aus­tralian owned and run. Great Bar­rier Reef

My job would be to help im­ple­ment new waste man­age­ment on all fronts.

Most peo­ple don't re­alise they use 60 litres of fuel a week, and a house uses two rolls of toi­let paper a week, along with its as­so­ci­ated other sewer prod­ucts; not to men­tion de­ter­gents and ru­ral farm ad­di­tives.

And be­cause it dis­ap­pears around the S bend peo­ple will not be held ac­count­able for it as they can't see were it goes. Ed­u­ca­tion

I can not vol­un­teer fund­ing as I am not cur­rently in a po­si­tion to ( nor is the gov­ern­ment fi­nan­cially). Health

Hos­pi­tal care is very close to my heart as I had a fiveyear -old son die wait­ing for ser­vice and an­other son trav­el­ling on five dif­fer­ent oc­ca­sions be­tween hos­pi­tals from Mackay, Proser­pine and Townsville be­fore he was out of the NICU & Ma­ter­nity sys­tem, which in my mind is com­pletely out of touch with re­al­ity of our tax paid for med­i­cal care. Tourism

Tourism from Townsville to Mackay (Daw­son) could be pro­moted via gov­ern­ment road­side bill boards.

Pro­mot­ing lo­cal at­trac­tions and prom­i­nent points.

Gov­ern­ment help on lur­ing grey no­mads and busi­ness loans on vi­able pocket in­dus­tries in­ter­ested in the trav­eller’s dol­lar.
