BAKED RELIEF ACTIVATED FOR BUSHFIRE SUPPORT

BRISBANE & SUNSHINE COAST COLLECTION POINTS, QLD

More than 100 fires are continuing to burn in rural NSW and QLD. More than 20 homes have been lost since Friday and it is unlikely many residents will be able to return home for a few days yet.

In light of the recent legal proceedings and controversies regarding local council and state government figures -

Does the (alleged) corruption alter your thoughts on the way you would vote in local and state elections?

In your opinion do the current representatives work in the best interest of the region and constituents?

Counting is now effectively finalised for the seat of Blair -
I have polled 4.01% of the vote.
An amazing result as an Independent - polling behind the major parties and ahead of the minors.

There is no doubt that with your support we have assisted in making the seat of Blair marginal.

I shall continue advocating for certain issues relating to Brisbane and Ipswich regions.

The demographic in Blair is changing. It is tired of the lack of effective community representation at state and federal level as well as the previous local government corruption.

This region shall be looking for action - to see it flourish rather than flounder as it has for the previous several terms of governance as a safe seat at federal and state level.
