Recently the Queensland Redistribution Commission released proposed changes to the State Electoral boundaries which will ultimately affect some of the Glass House electorate.
In short the changes would include:
•a proposed name change from Glass House to Tibrogargan;
•Palmwoods, Chevallum, the small part of Landsborough that was in Glass House and Caboolture would be in neighbouring electorates; and
•Mooloolah, Rocksberg, Upper Caboolture, Ocean View and Moorina would be added to the electorate.
So what does that mean…
The electorate is 90% the same as Glass House. I have eight years of connection, of success, of understanding the issues and of knowing what needs to be done in the electorate. I simply could not leave it to anyone else to finish things like the D’Aguilar Highway upgrades, the Woodford High School, the Maleny Indoor Aquatic Centre, the Maleny-Kenilworth Road, the Rail duplication…and the list goes on and on. It is therefore my intention to contest the seat of Tibrogargan if the proposed changes go through and I want to assure you of my ongoing commitment to this region.
If you are interested in having a look at the maps or having a say about the new boundaries, further information is available on the ECQ website at http://boundaries.ecq.qld.gov.au/.
