■ Major issues
THERE are many issues affecting Blair and its residents, these include fixing schools and hospitals, easing pressure on family budgets, standing up for workers, building a strong economy that works for all of us and investing in cheaper, cleaner, renewable energy. Blair should be getting a fair go on infrastructure spending.
■ Why you
I’M AN Ipswich local through and through. Living here my whole life means I understand the issues which affect regional and rural Queenslanders. I have a record of delivering for all of Blair from the Eastern parts of Ipswich to the entire Somerset Region. I’ve delivered a cancer clinic for the Mater Hospital in Springfield, Ipswich Motorway upgrades and the Blacksoil interchange. I know what our region needs to keep being the best place to live.
■ Key goals
FUNDING for quality education, health and hospitals, jobs and infrastructure are my key goals. Labor is making education more accessible and funding more doctors and nurses. We’ll restore funding for training and apprenticeships, and fund vital infrastructure projects. We’ll achieve this by not looking after the top end of town and reversing tax cuts for banks and multinationals.
I’ve made a number of local funding commitments and delivering those will be another priority if Labor forms government.
