Labor abandons Mudgeeraba in 2017-18 Budget

  • Do-nothing Labor Government delivers nothing for Mudgeeraba
  • Labor abandons Gold Coast residents to shore up Labor seats
  • Labor is nowhere to be seen on local issues

The Palaszczuk Labor Government has abandoned the Mudgeeraba electorate in its 2017-18 State Budget.

Member for Mudgeeraba, Ros Bates MP slammed Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Treasurer Curtis Pitt after their latest Budget again contained nothing for her electorate.

“Labor’s Budget once again shows they are completely out of touch with the needs of the Mudgeeraba electorate,” she said.

“We have been blatantly disregarded and it is our local area that will miss out as a result.

“This is nothing more than a cynical attempt to shore up Labor seats before the next election.

“Labor can spin the facts any way they like, but residents know Labor is nowhere to be seen on local issues.

“All Labor has been able to muster up in almost three years is $179,000 to seal a walking track in Springbrook National Park at Natural Bridge.

“In contrast, the LNP invested more than $1 million for a new suspension bridge and walking track upgrades at Purlingbrook Falls in 2014.

“It was Labor who gave us the Reedy Creek quarry and it was people power that stopped it.

“It was the LNP who shamed Labor into funding the next M1 upgrade from Robina to Reedy Creek after 2 ½ years of delays, but no funding has been set aside until after 2018 for the upgrade itself.

“It was the LNP who funded the $8 million Carrara roundabout upgrade, but that didn’t stop Labor from desperately rehashing and renouncing it yet again in this Budget.

“With a rail fail, email scandal, Child Safety crisis, domestic violence crisis, Adani indecision, infrastructure cuts and price hikes, locals know this is a do-nothing Labor Government.

“Only the LNP will build a better Mudgeeraba and a better Queensland.”
