My vision is for a Queensland that reaches its full potential.

Part of the vision is air conditioning every state school in Queensland.

Every child should learn and every teacher should teach in a cool learning environment.

We want our kids to be the smartest in the nation.

Now you guys are going from a good prospect to JUST ANOTHER political party that people MAY vote for because the last lot have cost the state and broken it financially. Get the DAMs built and CLEAN up the Labor mess. Might pay you review some of your advisors. Their advice common sense need review. Use your own commonsense. Towing the party line and uttering the script placed in front of you without scrutiny is a BAD future for a leader.

I’m all for utilising all of our assets of comfort that were unavailable in our time. We can’t go back to the past, so be happy that our children can be more comfortable especially at school. I imagine air cooling is about to change from these environmentally unfriendly conditioners we have now... hope so🤔

ie we even were allowed to skin our knees in the playground ,.oh for the memories ,.

In the 50s we had louvre windows in class rooms, still sweated but no one complained.

Ok Deb as you see we want water first and good governing with the info structure second school is for the do gooders and is cheap compared to the big deal my girl . Wake up get water controlled info structure second for the multitude you want to move here , which I question ! School stuff well we need parent and student belief they can switch on not this teachers problem . BS

You're kidding, aren't you?????? Water for the farmers & rural folks & attend to the fire victims first, decrease wages for Qld politicians 2nd, fix the homeless 3rd, fix the health dept 4th, fix the education system 5th, support the arts & entertainment industry 6th, roads 7th, etc etc.. AC in schools bottom of the list.

I don't know ,.We had no air con back in my school days ,.50's n i would think we produced some pretty smart kids ,.you see in those days it was more about learning than comfort and sooking ,.

I hope you mean this. It is ridiculously hot to expect children to concentrate.

I have no issue with doing this, but it needs to be taught that the only reason it feels hot now is because we are acclimated to climate control. Air conditioned house, to air conditioned car, to air conditioned shops or air conditioned office back to air conditioned car to air conditioned house.

Given that a few weeks ago you brought up 'apparel' as an issue, did someone in your corner not tell you it's not a good look to have a see through blouse or are you going for the 'sexy politician' look.

Why waste air conditioning on KIDS( BABY GOATS ) ANIMALS use the air conditioning for our children ( HUMAN BEINGS )

Just increase emissions, increase global warming and taxes to pay the power bill

but////but peter beatty was golng to do that ////heard it before

Seriously , why air condition the rooms..make the kids toughen up. We never had AC in our rooms . Arent these kids protesting climate change? They need to.walk the talk.

What a waste of money, spend it on hospitals & roads

too expensive - ceiling fans maybe!

And where will the money come from ? After the Bradford Dam and all your other promises , everything cannot be done . Lies wont do it this time , you or labor , lies lies and more lies .

How about concentrating on water availability for farmers and a detailed Bushfire Mitigation strategy before you start trotting out far, far less important scraps to the Electorate.

I REMEMBER the government putting in water tanks into schools and most have never been used so choose wisely dams first

Make it happen Deb.

Those schools that we don't sell to developer mates that is...

Don’t go making too many promises..... you’ll have plenty to clean up first

Where will the power to run them come from?

There goes the " climate change " narrative, straight down the drain.

This is why the kids of today are such snowflakes, can’t survive without air conditioning. How about you start building schools that aren’t an Architects wet dream and look at utilising construction methods to heat and cool the buildings depending on the season.

The Palaszczuk Government’s full page advertisement in the Courier Mail today defending its decision to snub Maleny Dairies and give the contract to French and Chinese companies shows Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor’s priorities are wrong. Just like renaming the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.

Labor’s not working for Queensland.

The elections can't come quickly enough. Then it will be goodbye Labor.

Does anyone think that Deb Frecklington will do any better, once in power LNP will pick up the ball and continue running toward the same goal as labour... hang on to your job at all costs, I do not believe that Irrigation, dams or better treatment of FNQ will change one iota, South East Qld will continue to drag money out of the North and no changes will happen. Ministers are toothless tigers, department heads don’t change, just a different signature on paperwork

I cannot believe these politicians are Queenslanders Please use your common sense and protect Local owned businesses in our Great State If you can't then I would suggest you need to move to another state Queensland is a proud state and we have always protected our own !!!!!

Now is the time for all Australians and governments to pull together and support every hard working Australians. Shame on you labor.

I noticed Queensland Premier went on holiday whilst bushfires were blazing in Perigean Beach and west of Brisbane and not a word in the media about it. 😎

The milk is supplied by Australian farmers with Australian workers but the profits go to China and France. Palaszczuk logic.

Deb don’t forget a lot of dairy farmers who vote for LNP are dairy farmers who supply lactilis and lion. Just keep that in mind please. Even though they are foreign owned they still are very passionate about their supplier and their industry.

Kay N Terry, Gosh I hope so.. This bloody woman doing a lot of harm. Wonder what she has against Queenslanders , to give Contracts to China???????

It certainly isn’t working ,,the most incompetent gov I’ve ever seen not sure how they were re-elected ??? They are working against Qld

Bring the elections on before the Labor gov make more bad decisions for Qld

The renaming of the hospital was to avoid confusion. It was only named that back in 2013 when you lot were in charge. Was that a waste of time too?

Thank god the Australian tax payer has an endless pot of money for them to spend.

That’s just wrong! Money must have changed hands somewhere along the line???

So they continue to waste our money on frivolous things. I hope she paid for that advertisement herself.

I can’t believe not using Maleny milk it is the best milk in Australia

Good government decisions are obvious. They don't have to be sold via paid advertisements. The first decision was wrong and now it is proven wrong by the second.

Definitely time for a change!

I hope everyone in QLD snubs her at the next election.

Australian farmers supply this company, Australian workers produce the product and LNP gave the same company the last contract. How is this any different.

She has failed qld, lets hope at the next ballot she is voted out .

What would they know about playing fair ? They always deal from the bottom of the deck ! As crooked as a dogs hind leg 😝🙈

And what's not working for Australia???

Maybe like so many politicians the contract was awarded with a promise of an employment contract after politics..... Lets wait and see

Ah Pala-chook-chook. Well she did grow up in Inala, or Goodna. One in the same aren’t they 🤷🏻‍♀️

And they’re using our money to do these ridiculous things.

it's about time deb good onya they tried to tell labor and the greens look what they do in Darwin works well that's y we ate in canberra and in a few months in qld to sort the mess

With due respect to the first Australians they’re burning was essentially a huge bbq, used as a hunting technique without control. Happy to be educated on this though.

Get rid of the greens all done and dusted

Yeah right, that will get the votes rolling in. How stupid

At last some one is using common sense 👏

We need to here a lot more from you guys!! Earn and Own the election this year!!!

Long as we do not start year long fires? - what do the Greenies say about this idea?

With no disrespect to the aboriginal rangers.... there’s a lot of white fellas from the land that have just as good an understanding of what needs doing and how to go about it. It’s bigger than just national parks as well. Land owners and and those who hold pastoral leases etc need to be allowed to manage the country they are responsible for.

A future LNP government will cut the guts out of the public service and front line services like they did under Can do Campbell. We remember what you did!

Deb, Are you for Real, the farmers are the ones that know the land & can use the locked land to feed animals with the help of the Rangers, not more bloody red tape. You really haven’t a clue what to do over the range & you just proved it.

IF THE LNP DOESN'T RUN WITH JIM KEOGH IN CURRUMBIN, THEY DESERVE TO LOSE THE SEAT.

Wow, what a pathetic attempt at a vote grab. Your party is known for its complete lack of respect for first nations people, and now this is being pulled. Shocking.

Words are cheep heard this all before vote hunting

talk to morrison what a dud.

Frank. You may want to reconsider because while they are very good a lighting them they never had any defence to stop or put them out

What a load of deceiving crap. Fuel mitigation and burns can protect communities to a limited extent but will not, repeat, not stop or protect the the rest of the bush catching fire. How the hell can it. And when it does catch it will do sweet fuck all for the rest of the bush and in no way fully protect houses or communities. The Australian bush is absolutely huge. You mean to tell me that traditional aboriginal burns were performed to protect the whole of Australian bush and never got out of control. Never. What happened if it did, back in those days there were no not fire fighters and appliances at the ready. Pretty well the only resources they had to put it out was to pull their dicks out and piss on it. This is pure and simple pacifying marketing propaganda from Scotty from Marketing Let the ignorant blame it all on the greens. Scumo now has a new marketing slogan. "Mitigation and Adaptation" AKA diversion from reality. If you believe any of this bullshit i have a pocket full of magic beans i want to sell to you. And they produce an unlimited amount of water if you throw them in a fire.

You don't have to burn anything get in and bulldoze fire breaks and manually remove the fuel you halfwits

MINISTER KEN WYATT MP -PACEMAKER FOR MORRISON LNP GOVERNMENT As more Aged Care reports come out such as the Flinders University Research on Innovation they Pile On to just what a lazy dead beat Minister for Aged Care Ken Wyatt MP was,, yet the quiet WA Voters rewarded him with a double digit increased margin .. Not surprising that OZ compares badly on a World Rating Basis for Aged Care ; in OZ 20% of people over 80 years are institutionalized, in NZ it is 14.6$ ; Japan 7.4% ; USA 6.1% .. It seems that the present bunch of Ministers around Aged Care believe that voters will treat them the same way at they did Minister Ken Wyatt MP even though Ken Wyatt's lack of actions were Ageist ,Racist , despicable cruelty & degradation... There is plenty that could be done in the increasingly overwhelmed Aged Care Sector without waiting for the final report of the ACRCommission. The Carer Visa with it's blood relative restriction stinks of corruption because Businesses can access the gentle cultures respectful of old difficult people with Work Visas but individuals cannot .....

So many promises being made, can’t keep them all, most will end up back on the shelf, to be rolled out at the next election campaign, sadly many will believe you, LNP still the choice to govern

This was promised years ago, by the current labour government, and still nothing done. Thanks for putting it on the agenda Deb.

Meanwhile we have a housing crisis. It's not that we don't have enough housing (there's alot of empty ones here and space plotted for more), but the fact that they are just too expensive. I'd have to move to Gladstone for affordable housing. Just shave $100 a week off rentals and we'd be talking fair. But it is a serious issue that I can't get a single bed apartment for $150 a week or that even share houses seem to charge alittle too much too, don't get me started on the over priced granny flats. Options for people like me, which there are alot of, is either move to Gladstone or share with strangers, which isn't an option for some people. This is ridiculous. We need action now, there is no reason for the prices of rentals to be so damn high (nor for sales too). It would be great if the government built some decent apartments and rented them at a humane price (or encourage others to do so) as a start. Property prices need to drop.

A future LNP government will cut the guts out of the public service and front line services like they did under Can do Campbell. We remember what you did!

I hope the Bradford scheme comes first and more dams

I so hope you keep up the good work Deb! You need to win this election or this State is screwed

IF THE LNP DOESN'T RUN WITH JIM KEOGH IN CURRUMBIN, THEY DESERVE TO LOSE THE SEAT.

Wow what a great policy which one of your mates will get that contract and how much did they pay you?

How is that different from a sporting grant to a marginal seat?

Water first

Palachook’s mates have had a few hand outs, along with Jackie Trad’s mates. They aren’t squeaky clean so maybe you shouldn’t be so quick to make judgement on the LNP. Do some research.

I hope NO AUSTRALIAN votes for this party and their criminal conduct with public money. Come next election, SCUMO and his scum buddies are out. Australia wont forget how you waste our money.

It won’t help the farmers that that have no cattle,Sheep or Pigs in breeding stock left. But don’t worry we have a walking track.

why not help the homeless australians we can walk elsewhere

So just want to make sure this this is correct: The LNP supporters are upset that milk is contracted to Paul's milk (overseas company)? It alright for the Federal LNP to sell Australian water, that should go to Australian farmers? Appears to be double standards

ABC Radio January 23 reports 65% of Qld Aged Care Homes are running at a loss & in danger of closing & the number is increasing.. Meantime our religious Federal Govt dithers as it did with Bush Fires & turns a blind eye to the blood relative restriction on the OZ Carer Visa ; businesses can access the gentle cultures respectful of old difficult people but individuals cannot /stinks of party donations/compensation... Similar situation with Live Cattle Exports , the Govt keeps condoning higher weight specifications while the numbers keep increasing & while our ABC is a 'No Show" ... Is this really vote buying at the expense of OZ Meat Processing jobs ??????? The Federal LNP Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace & the Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O'Brien have been made aware of the flaw in the Carer Visa & Live Cattle Export situation for some years .. Andrew Wallace has been doing an increasing amount of head nodding on TV behind Minister"s interviews ; Andrew saw fit to insert a Bible quote Isaiah 9:6 on his Merry Xmas /Happy New Year Card Calendar , so if we see Andrew Wallace promoted we will know that it is religious bases & not merit bases & taxpayers helped fund his promotion with a Bible quote on his Xmas Card Calendar.

Thousands of locals and tourists explore🌿 this incredible landmark every week and it needs to be looked after.

We're being proactive and ensuring this environment can be enjoyed now and in the future. 🌏

Great to hear ALL your plans in an effort to secure your parties election bid later this year. YOU DO NOT need to promise expenditure and resources that we do not have. Qld is in SERIOUS debt thanks to Labor. WE do not need another party to promise and entice us with future expenditure that is not affordable. Your party ALREADY has more than 50% of the vote WITHOUT having to promise anything thanks to the wasteful and corrupt Labor government.

So the people who vote for you, know that you stopped our Dairy Farmers from getting paid a fair price Deb??? The year 2000 we had 1,500 family and company dairy farms in our State. Today, we have 340. This does not worry you, as you follow 'the market should take care of this', these are families, these are generational people who have supplied our baby formula our cheese our butter and your latte. Even the Chinese know this, that is why they are trying to buy our dairy farms, and YOU are letting them. You and your Labor mates voted down a fair price scheme, you do not stand with farmers, you only stand with the share markets and those that play the share game. shame and more shame. I wonder if you will leave this post up, or are you going to block it. Well we will see.

Bring the money out of the latte sipping community and back into rural/ regional areas if you want to get elected next October. The average Queenslander is getting fed up with all these projects favouring the SE and Brisbane. These areas are not the government make or break votes, they are predominantly green.

I raise you a dollar.

Before you privatised everything or after?

Are they in a marginal electorate.

You are doing a great job Deb , not like the corrupt labor government, Tradd and the labor government they must Go this self serving corrupt premier spending 88thousand of taxpayer money to live it up at Versachies Gold coast for two weeks nice one

Looking forward to having a good govt for Qld.

Isn't that the council's job ?

Already chasing votes from the south east what f-----g hope have we got nth of Gympie

More deaths on the Bruce but here we go again nothing for Regionals as usual, no votes in the Bush. Come on Pauline & Robbie you good things.By the way, doing anything about the bats, that’s right out of sight out of mind, gee nothing seem to have changed from TIM,S policy, sounds the same.

why dont you help the homeless Australians 40,000 are children who cares about a walking track you politicians need a reality check and fast

Also don’t forget the Untruths you promised the people of ACLAND & then got on the miners side, must be good donors.

PLAN OF EVANGELICAL FEDERAL GOVT IS TO HAVE NO PLAN ;,EXCEPT FOR REINFORCING BASE ABC Radio January 23 reports 65% of Qld Aged Care Homes are running at a loss & in danger of closing & the number is increasing..

Jann Stuckey has been a fierce and tireless advocate for the people of Currumbin since she was first elected in 2004.

We are sad that Jann Stuckey has been forced to this decision to resign from the Queensland Parliament for health reasons.

Jann has always spoken her mind, stood up for her community and done what she has believed to be right,” LNP President David Hutchinson said.

“We wish Jann all the very best for a healthy recovery and thank her for her many years of service to the people of Currumbin and our great state of Queensland,” Mr Hutchinson said.

Love Deb. Hope she is elected to get rid of the union run liebor party.

Too late one contract is signed

She needs to be kicked out. Has she done one good thing?? Anything useful at all??? What a waste, such a disgrace. We need politicians who take action, no more childish finger pointing and blaming. Australia can't afford shitty politics anymore.

outrageous

A few facts which the people of Queensland may not be aware of. The Palaszczuk Government supports local producers. Unfortunately Maleny Dairies couldn’t supply the volume needed for Metro Norths dairy contract and, more importantly, couldn’t supply all the products to meet the dietary requirements of sick Queenslanders in hospital. The contract was awarded to the company that owns Pauls. Pauls has been a Queensland based company from the very beginning when they opened their first milk factory on the banks of the Brisbane River back in the 1930s. This contract will see Pauls buy milk from over 140 Queensland dairy farmers. Every single one of them family owned and operated. These are family-owned dairies in Darling Downs, Lockyer Valley, Wide Bay, South Burnett, Central Queensland and the Atherton Tableland. I’d like to know which of these 140 Queensland farmers Deb Frecklington would take business from? Would she take business from Dairy Farmers in her own electorate? Pauls also employs over 700 Queenslanders in Queensland. Deb Fecklington and the LNP approved the first Metro North dairy contract to Pauls in 2014 when she was Campbell Newman’s assistant treasurer. On the Sunshine Coast, where Maleny Dairies is based, the contract was also awarded to Pauls under the LNP. The Palaszczuk government is using government spending to create local jobs. This contract to provide milk to Brisbane hospitals was awarded to a Brisbane-based company and will support jobs in Brisbane and throughout Queensland. The Buy Queensland policy has invested $17 Billion with over 32,500 Queensland-located businesses since the introduction of Buy Queensland in September 2017.

So why don't you stand with Hansen on this issue

Lost their way as always. Same with Center or State!!

A load of s..t

Actually while we’re at it Australia Post is the government so why do they have warehouses in China and they bring all the stuff from China to Australia and it’s posted for free why ...EBay China

Anna probably supports the union movement on site . Anna to stupid to promote business growth

Hi Deb, Hope you are not saying the same things that you said to the POOR people in Acland just too get votes, then do the opposite. No more untruths please, you have hurt too many people.

So let’s not have competitive tenders. Just award to Qld companies even if they don’t meet the tender requirements. LNP privatisation.

Time to vote against Labour’s Anna Palaszczuk decision ...

Dodgy Jackie and Anna Comeunstuck are fine examples of the new-age latte-sipping most elite Labor spivs.

Local farmers,local employees....all mines are foreign owned do we have reject power from the coal....

I though labor was for the workers?

PAULS won the contract. They have been based in Queensland since the 1930s and they have always sourced their milk from Queensland dairy farmers. What Deb Frecklington is doing here is making it very plain that her government will favour just ONE dairy farmer...and we don't eed to guess which one! Frecklington needs to d her ow grocery shopping so she can see the variety of products which Pauls produces and THAT is why they won the contract - because they could supply all the products the hospitas needed for patients dietary needs.

Come October Vote Labor Out . Bent as a 9 Dollar Note

Stop selling our country

WAKE UP AUSTRALIA! WAKE UP AUSTRALIA! We who are the real Aussies need to first of all get rid of the Rotten ABC. Then from there on look at this. In Australia we as Voters can do something about it. Next year in Queensland we have Local Council Elections and State Elections. Local Councils are the ones that issue permits for burn backs. Local councils are riddled with Greens and Labor as real people are too busy running business and working to bring honesty and safety into the community. Next Time you vote Put Labor Last and the Greens second to last. From there on it's up to you

Even though they didn't win the tender I support competitive tendering when it comes to projects, logistics, transport and supplies for the Government. Hopefully next time they will win the contract.if they have the facilities to supply? There might be other opportunities anyway with Government or another private customer for Maleny Dairies in the future?

Make Queensland Great again! Get rid of the Labour party and look after Queensland business first!

Stop the mines , stop our local diaries getting local contracts. It’s obvious that there is no care about our future from this so called government. Get rid of this rubbish.

Do some bloody research on this. Don't just read LNP propaganda BS.

$84 Billion in State Debt . How the Hell does that happen ?

I’m at Maleny Dairies with local member Andrew Powell MP launching a Parliamentary petition and calling on the Palaszczuk Labor Government to review its decision to refuse a contract to locally owned Maleny Dairies.

We are calling out Labor’s ‘Buy Queensland' sham.

Labor consistently showcase Maleny Dairies as part of their ‘Buy Queensland’ campaign and now they’ve been given a slap in the face.

Ross Hopper from Maleny Dairies says they could easily supply the tendor.

They were ignored and they were put at the back of the line in favour of French and Chinese milk companies for a tender at Queensland hospitals.

How do these dickhead expect to win votes, by giving jobs and contracts, to overseas companies. Hopefully the Labour party will be gone soon.

O.K. so what will Maleny milk users drink if the hospitals get all maleny milk ,.i know that maleny produce high qualiymilk so let the local users keep their milk ,.hospitals only use little samples of milk any how ,.

Unfortunately Maleny does not have a unionised workforce at the processing end of the delivery cycle as does the foreign owned processors. And that is the issue.

rockin the target collection as always

It's a bit like the car industry. The open tendering process will always end in exporting Aussie jobs. If we want an Australian dairy industry we need to foster local competition and let the locals fight it out when tenders are put out. Sounds like another casualty from a trade deal. For the sake of our kids we need to start making and growing things again.

If everyone that’s pointing fingers on here about the government,s choice, buys milk from Malany dairy they wouldn’t need any government contract.

Good Aussi

Australians WANT Australian Products We the people would love to see Aussies put FIRST....just for a change

Keep working hard deb tails up

It’s to expensive 🤷‍♂️

Government is the biggest legal criminal organisation in the world.

Australian company’s Australian milk Australian jobs

Yuk soon as I found out he was a right wing nut I stopped buying his milk.

Oh piss off

Please people, open you eyes (and ears) and get the FACTS instead of the spin because the people of Queensland are being sold a pup by the LNP. Read this👇 The Palaszczuk Government supports local producers. Unfortunately Maleny Dairies couldn’t supply the volume needed for Metro Norths dairy contract and, more importantly, couldn’t supply all the products to meet the dietary requirements of sick Queenslanders in hospital. The contract was awarded to the company that owns Pauls. Pauls has been a Queensland based company from the very beginning when they opened their first milk factory on the banks of the Brisbane River back in the 1930s. This contract will see Pauls buy milk from over 140 Queensland dairy farmers. Every single one of them family owned and operated. These are family-owned dairies in Darling Downs, Lockyer Valley, Wide Bay, South Burnett, Central Queensland and the Atherton Tableland. I’d like to know which of these 140 Queensland farmers Deb Frecklington would take business from? Would she take business from Dairy Farmers in her own electorate? Pauls also employs over 700 Queenslanders in Queensland. Deb Fecklington and the LNP approved the first Metro North dairy contract to Pauls in 2014 when she was Campbell Newman’s assistant treasurer. On the Sunshine Coast, where Maleny Dairies is based, the contract was also awarded to Pauls under the LNP. The Palaszczuk government is using government spending to create local jobs. This contract to provide milk to Brisbane hospitals was awarded to a Brisbane-based company and will support jobs in Brisbane and throughout Queensland. The Buy Queensland policy has invested $17 Billion with over 32,500 Queensland-located businesses since the introduction of Buy Queensland in September 2017.

Support our Aussie Farmers!! We don’t need milk from overseas.. I’m disgusted we would even import any at all... SHAME SHAME on the government

Hope you succeed in supplying the milk sooner than later it is a kick in the guts for our QLD dairy

My understanding is that this tender process was carried out by the Metro North Hospital and Health Service, an independent statutory body so can someone explain how this is a decision made by the “Palaszczuk Labor Government”??

Anna has said before both elections jobs, jobs, jobs but after each last 2 elections it is no jobs, jobs, jobs only the highest unemployment in our history and of all Australian States. But lots of jobs, jobs, jobs for public servants.

Although it would be better to use Aussie owned milk companies. What was the point in tendering the for supply of milk. Maleny diaries said they couldn’t go as low as their competition yet when the contract wasn’t given they cry fowl play. Wish the government would step in on my behalf every time another company wins over my quotes 🤷‍♂️

Australian jobs plus the contract, do the sums. It isn’t always the lowest bid, it is the full equation!

Pay peanuts, get monkeys - probably imported powdered milk when Aussie dairy cows are gone! Tender documents could have included provisions specifying Non-Price Selection Criteria eg Capacity Building of workforce & organisation etc (as is common in modern Procurement contracts).

Haha the biased liberal government, I hope we will all gather in my defence when I get a tender refused one day 😂😂😂

Good on you Deb, wish you success!
