Posted February 23, 2012 by Alex Scott

Residents from the Torres Strait community are being invited to a community grassroots

forum at the Thursday Island Bowls Club this week (Thursday February 23).

Local families and community groups are going to have an opportunity to share their ideas about the future of quality public services for the region.

“We’re really looking forward to hearing what Torres Strait residents have to say about the future of local public services,” Together Assistant Secretary Kate Flanders said today.

“Everyone is invited to this Thursday Island community forum, which is to be held this Thursday, February 23, 5.30pm at the Thursday Island Bowls Club.”

Ms Flanders said all local state election candidates have been invited.

“We cannot guarantee all the local candidates will show however we’ll see who shall be there to listen and consult,” Ms Flanders said.

“Undoubtedly Torres Strait residents shall have a fair bit to say about their vision for a brighter, better future.

“Community forums such as this one on Thursday Island are all part of Together’s Building Blocks campaign.

“Families, including those right here in the Torres Strait are facing real pressures and want political leaders that will stand up for quality services in their local communities.

“Whoever is elected to Queensland’s Parliament shall have to think about continuous consulting with the People of the Torres Strait.”
