Bundaberg residents turning the spotlight on state political candidates

Posted March 14, 2012 by Alex Scott

Bundaberg residents shall be shedding light on local state election issues at a local community forum this week (Thursday March 15, 2012).

“In the sprint to the vote, we’re giving Bundaberg workers and their families an opportunity to quiz some of the state candidates about the local issues that really matter to them, in the electorates of Bundaberg and Burnett,” Together Secretary Alex Scott said today.

“No doubt local Bundaberg workers shall have quite a bit to say about the local community, health and education services that the region’s families and older residents need for the future.

“This is an opportunity for locals to hear from candidates and question them about their plans for jobs and quality services for the local Bundaberg community.”

Mr Scott said forums had already been held at Cairns and on Thursday Island in the Torres Strait and in Mackay.

“This local grassroots Bundaberg forum certainly could get interesting as attendees discuss priorities such as equitable regional funding for services.

“State candidates know they have to earn each and every vote, and it’s their plans for quality local public services that shall be under the spotlight at this community event.”
