Lis­ter mat­ter re­ferred to po­lice

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS -

MEM­BER for South­ern Downs James Lis­ter has strongly de­nied any wrong-do­ing af­ter South­ern Downs Re­gional Coun­cil al­legedly made a com­plaint to po­lice.

The Border Post has asked coun­cil to comment on the mat­ter, but coun­cil did not wish to dis­cuss the specifics around the al­le­ga­tion.

“As the com­plaint is cur­rently be­ing in­ves­ti­gated, it wouldn’t be ap­pro­pri­ate for coun­cil to comment at this stage,” the spokesper­son said.

“Sounds like dirty tricks,” Lis­ter said.

“I'm our mem­ber of par­lia­ment, and I am too busy with im­por­tant work for the elec­torate than to worry about silly name-call­ing and po­lit­i­cal stunts.

“I just wish ev­ery­one would fo­cus on the job they're paid to do rather than wast­ing time with silly plots and schemes.

“The coun­cil said I'm not al­lowed to have de­tails (about the com­plaint) ei­ther.”
