Everyone would admit that 2011 was a tough year for Queensland and I know many locals were keen to see the start of a fresh new year. It certainly has started off with some stunning, albeit hot weather. Along with a lot of Sunny Coasters, my family and I spent the majority of the Christmas break at the beach or swimming at the local pool. But now its time to get back into the swing of things and plan for the state election that will be held in the first part of this year. To keep informed with where I am and what I have been up to make sure you sign up for my monthly newsletter in the Keep Informed section here on my website. I will also be posting LNP policies on this site but they can also be viewed directly at www.candoqld.com.au.
