Latitudes North & NQ Campaign Office Opening
Last Friday, both State Executive and State Shadow Cabinet met in Townsville ahead of Latitudes North, an annual event showcasing North and Far North Queensland.
It was great to see so many state and federal representatives in attendance to listen to and engage with the local Party membership.
You can see a full list of passed resolutions here.
On Saturday, I had the pleasure of opening a new campaign office in Townsville to better resource our North Queensland candidates at the next election. You can see the video of the opening by clicking here.
The Truth About GetUp!
This week, the Federal Coalition launched a new website exposing the truth about the left-wing activist group GetUp! as the campaign arm of the Labor Party and the Greens.
GetUp pretends that it is non-partisan, yet it aggressively campaigns for left-wing issues and against Coalition governments and candidates.
Did you know that Bill Shorten was a founding GetUp board member in 2005 and his union, the AWU, gave them $100,000 of seed funding?
The AWU was just one of many unions that funnelled $7.9 million in donations to the Labor Party last year.

LNP Acting President
Deb’s Queensland Report
I was proud to announce this week the LNP’s commitment to launch the Queensland Dam Company.
It’s a key part in the LNP’s plan for North Queensland, and it was great to share our vision at Latitudes North in Townsville.
We will build new dams and complete dam upgrades in North and Central Queensland to kickstart the regions.
The Queensland Dam Company is a sign of our pledge to invest in infrastructure across Queensland.
Dams, roads, bridges and ports help to build the economy and create jobs.
I’ve already committed to build a second M1 and upgrade key sections of the Bruce Highway – busting congestion as we go.
The Palaszczuk Labor Government only has one priority and that’s a $5.4 billion tunnel, which is already 18 months behind schedule.
Annastacia Palaszczuk’s wrong priorities were clear in a report this week that showed funding in the infrastructure pipeline has dried up.
The Major Projects Pipeline report showed funding will plummet from $6.1 billion in 2018/19 to $4.6 billion in 2019/20.
Enough is enough. We need more infrastructure, not less.
Just look at the health crisis and our hospitals bursting at the seams.
Australasian College for Emergency Medicine president doctor Simon Judkins this week described mental health patients spending days before being admitted to an emergency bed as “inhuman at best and torture at worst”.
We’re hearing warning after warning that our public health system is in crisis.
Instead of investing in hospital infrastructure or better patient care, Annastacia Palaszczuk would rather spend money on renaming hospitals.
Patient care will always be the LNP’s priority.
I also want Queenslanders to be safe.
This week, Shadow Attorney-General David Janetzki and I announced the LNP’s new road rage laws to protect Queenslanders.
Under our laws, if drivers lose control, they’ll lose their licence for three years.
We need these laws because we are seeing too many terrifying scenes of violence on our roads.
Innocent lives are being put at risk by maniac motorists and our laws will ensure the worst offenders face five years in jail.
Tough laws that back up our hard-working police are key to turning our escalating crime rates around.
Residents shared their crime concerns at the LNP’s community crime forum in Mansfield this week.
Shadow Police Minister Trevor Watts, Tim Mander and I will be holding another one in Aspley on March 19 and I encourage you to come along.
