It was a great day at the Wondai Proston Wolves Rugby League Club first Ladies Day on Saturday. Bringing together the Wondai, Proston and Murgon communities to celebrate women in Rugby League. An example of a progressive Club doing great things.

Thank you to Kym McIntosh for attending and congratulations to Brittany Holding and her team of volunteers for making the day such a success.

Budget Week fails

When it comes to water, manufacturing and regional development the Government and Ministers like to talk a big game, but they just don't deliver!
Here is a portion of my speech in response to the State budget.

I caught up with Dobbo from Rural Queensland Today this week following the Budget announcement.

📣Budget update

South Burnett Regional Council area has been forgotten again.  There is absolutely no funding for key connecting roads like the Mundubbera-Durong Road, Kingaroy-Barkers Creek Road, Memerambi-Gordonbrook Road or Byee Road and there is no new funding for our major highways like the Burnett Highway or the Bunya Highway. 

No funding has been allocated to upgrade the dangerous Tanduringie Creek Bridge and once again the GS Bond Bridge on the Chinchilla-Wondai Road has completely dropped off the radar.

The only road improvement I can find in the budget papers is a small co-contribution of $607,000 to help widen and seal the Blackbutt-Crows Nest Road, but this is not due to be undertaken until 2024/25!

I had hoped to see funding for important projects like the Barlil Weir, Telestroke services, or a Persistent Pain Clinic for the South Burnett. 

Most of the projects listed in the Budget for the South Burnett are not new projects, they are just reannouncements.

Labor really needs to start looking at the South Burnett and the huge opportunities we have here.  But it needs backing with better roads, better health services, water security for irrigators and less red and green tape for our primary producers and small business.

📣Budget update

Just 2.6 per cent of the North Coast region roads budget has been allocated to Somerset roads.

There is no new funding for our major highways like the D’Aguilar or the Brisbane Valley Highway within the Somerset Regional Council area.

Given the continued deterioration of the major connecting roads throughout the region it seems unbelievable that our region can be overlooked again leaving our regional communities to put up with a third-class road system – especially when the Somerset region covers almost 50% of the North Coast region!

I will continue to push for these issues on behalf of our community.

Sorry Nanango electorate but it appears we have another completely under whelming budget.  

Several re-announcements and no major road announcements to be found.

I’ll keep digging and update you tomorrow.

This afternoon the State Government will hand down their 2022/23 budget.

Every budget since 2015 has contained a ‘record’ investment in health.  But the system has never performed worse.

I’ll be watching closely to see whether the Nanango electorate gets our fair share in health, roads and infrastructure!

Great news that Scrub Creek residents have a temporary fix to the washed away Scrub Creek causeway.
I will continue working to ensure a permanent fix is achieved for the residents who rely on this access.
