Be Heard

 

Dear fellow members,

As members of the LNP we must be the loudest and proudest advocates for our party, our people and our policies.

We should also acknowledge that there will be times when our policy positions or political decisions do not exactly align with our own ideals and I share your frustration when too often we see the personal get in the way of the political.

However, the reality is that we cannot expect the public to come with us, to vote for our MP’s, Senators and candidates if we as individuals aren’t doing everything possible to promote our cause.  I often hear that this is because our members and supporters are not being armed with enough information, in a timely manner, with which to combat the negative messages or promote our positive ones.  In a large, volunteer-driven organisation such as ours, elements of this criticism are undoubtedly true.

Let’s try and fix this.

Below is a link to an online form that will allow you to opt-in to receive 2 or 3 messages per week sent to your mobile phone.  These messages will be succinct, relevant, and hopefully arm you with enough easily digestible information to confidently promote the LNP and, where necessary, highlight the economic and social havoc that a federal Labor government will certainly deliver.

LNP Acting President

Deb’s Queensland Report

Firstly, I would like to wish all our members a Happy New Year and all the best for 2019.

Your hard work and dedication last year was incredibly appreciated, and the LNP team is looking forward to working with you as we gear up for the election in 2020.

Every day counts, and I haven’t wasted a single opportunity to get out and listen to Queenslanders.

Everywhere I went this week I was told Queensland needs tougher laws to protect communities from criminals like Robert John Fardon.

Annastacia Palaszczuk’s weak laws and leadership are the reason this dangerous repeat sex offender is out and about without a GPS tracking his every movement.

Protecting the community should be the priority for every government. That’s why in September last year my Shadow Attorney-General David Janetzki introduced proposed legislation into the Parliament to deal with offenders just like Fardon.

It would have most likely prevented his release last week and guaranteed strict supervision until the day he dies.

Labor had a chance to do the right thing by the community and support our tough laws, but Annastacia Palaszczuk’s petty politics meant urgent debate over the Bill was blocked

Now Fardon is free and moving unchecked by GPS in the community.

Queensland needs a government that would get tough on crime and that’s why it’s crucial we win in 2020.

Labor are proving time and time again they are unable to get a grip on serious crime.

There was a lot of talk in the media this week about legalising drugs.

My message was clear – a government I lead would re-double our efforts in the war on drugs and focus on more treatment, prevention and rehabilitation.

We would be tough on crime and give the police the funding and resources needed to track down the criminals that peddle drugs to our kids.

However, the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s position is that this is a Federal issue. Once again we saw zero leadership on an important issue in our state from Labor.

The LNP on the other hand is taking the lead on drugs. We have already committed to build four new rehab centres across the state, with more detox facilities to get people off their addiction and get them the help they need to stay clean.

The Palaszczuk Government is literally in the dark without a clue what to do when it comes to the Gabba. Years of Labor neglecting the grand old girl has caught up with them.

It was a National embarrassment when the lights went out on the Heat’s BBL clash on Thursday night.

Labor have let the once mighty Gabba fall into disrepair. Here’s hoping next week’s day/night test at the venue goes off without a hitch.

Crime was a hot topic when I was in Toowoomba with Trevor Watts and David Janetzki on Wednesday.

 

They introduced me to Corby Orford, a local resident doing all she can through an online crime awareness group to help make her community safe.

People like Corby are needed more than ever because there are 30 fewer officers on the frontline in Toowoomba thanks to Labor.

I also caught up with Sam O’Connor in Bonney this week.

Congestion is chocking local roads across the southeast and it’s only getting worse under Labor.

 

An LNP Government would work with local councils on key upgrades and have a priority list for delivery.

Busting congestion is one of the key priorities for the LNP in 2019 and we will continue to fight for a better deal for motorists.

We want to see good legislation passed this year and I’m excited to get back onto the floor of Parliament next month.

We will continue to hold Annastacia Palaszczuk’s government to account, but we will also continue to offer alternate suggestions and ideas.

Last year we released a number of policies and put pressure on the government to adopt a number of important ideas or policy positions, including real-time fuel price monitoring and fixing the M1.

I am completely focused on the LNP Economic Plan to bust congestion, lower electricity prices, and deliver better health and education services.

Follow me on Facebook at stay up to date with what we achieve in 2019.
