Out and About during the election campaign

The last week of the campaign was certainly the busiest in the lead up to election day.  Campbell announced the LNP’s ‘First 100 Day’ action plan that outlines our immediate agenda.  I would encourage you to visit to see the full action plan.

I started out the week with a visit to the Beaudesert electorate where I spent some time with LNP Candidate Jon Krause as part of the LNP 89 seat blitz.  I also visited the Kallangur electorate with LNP Candidate Trevor Ruthenburg and paid a visit to Kennedy Classic Aged Timbers.  I also spent some time with Scott Emerson MP who has the seat of Indooroopilly where we toured some green space in his electorate.



The last Saturday before the election I attended the Caboolture Netball March Pass and Carnival where I was asked to be one of the competition judges, along with legend Shirley Tinney and Wyatt Roy.  I was feeling the pressure!!
I continued my day with a visit to the Woodford Fire Brigade for a presentation, then to  the Woodford Muster and the Australian Narrow Gauge Railway Museum AGM.  I had hoped to get to the Woodford Rodeo but wet weather meant it was called off. 
Week 4 of the campaign started out with a visit to Erowal Nursing Home in Maleny.  It was really nice to share a cuppa and some lamingtons with the residents and then participate in the indoor bowling.  There’s some demon bowlers at Erowal.  Lots of Fun!!  A big thanks to Roma and the other hard working staff and volunteers for helping to arrange this visit.

The Hinterland Visitor Information Centre recently requested a Queensland Flag from my office that they intend to hang on a new flag pole in the front yard. It was a great pleasure to personally present the flag to this hardworking volunteer community organisation on Monday as well.






My Tuesday morning was spent at the monthly Maleny Commerce Breakfast where I had the chance to address those in attendance on LNP policy and my priorities for this great electorate. There was a great turn out of local interested people and I thank Maleny Commerce for the invitation.  On Wednesday and Thursday this week you might see me in and around Montville, Elimbah and Peachester. I will be outside some of the local schools and also visiting the business owners.  I will also be attending the monthly Caboolture Commerce Dinner on Wednesday night which is always a fun filled evening.

On Friday I was able to pop in and see the Beerwah Peachester RSL volunteers be presented with a cardiac defibrillator and first aid kit from the Heart Support Group and the St Johns Ambulance service.  These will be very valuable pieces of equipment for the RSL staff, members and volunteers and I thank all who made this possible.
