MOOLOOLABA BOAT PA­RADE

MAY I take this op­por­tu­nity to wish you all a safe, peace­ful and joy­ful Christ­mas and new year and en­cour­age you to join in on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 22, as we cheer on the brightly lit boats from van­tage points along the Mooloolah River from 6.30pm.

Thanks to the Mooloolaba Yacht Club, this year’s event will raise funds for the Sun­shine Coast branch of Rosies Friends on the Street, JOIN THE CAM­PAIGN

FEWER peo­ple us­ing our buses than five years ago is ev­i­dence the Sun­shine Coast pub­lic trans­port sys­tem needs fix­ing.

About 8000 peo­ple are mov­ing to our re­gion ev­ery year, but fig­ures show that 120,000 fewer bus trips were made across our re­gion this year, com­pared to 2013-14.

That’s why I’ve spon­sored a pe­ti­tion to call on the La­bor Gov­ern­ment to pro­vide a bet­ter pub­lic trans­port sys­tem to sup­port our grow­ing pop­u­la­tion and bust con­ges­tion.

To sign my e-pe­ti­tion, go to the web­site, par­lia­ment.qld.gov.au.
