Thank-you Far North Queensland for such a warm welcome during my visit!
Water and Regional Development were certainly at the fore front of all discussions with Cairns Mayor Bob Manning and Tablelands Regional Council.
#Shadowminister

I was delighted to receive a visit from Shadow Minister for Water and the Construction of Dams and Shadow Minister for Regional Development and Manufacturing, Deb Frecklington MP.

We had very positive discussions about the Mareeba Shire's need for dependable bulk water supply to support its thriving agricultural sector and the problems that our ageing water infrastructure poses for our Shire, like so many other local government areas.

We also chatted about our ongoing concerns with the state of the Barron River Bridge, our Shire's desire for improved transport access between Cairns and Mareeba, and the urgent need for a Mareeba Bypass and upgrade of Ootann Road, all of which Deb will take back to the State Liberal National Party for discussion.

Thank you Mayor Toppin for your time. It was great to meet with you this morning in Mareeba.

Water is a precious resource.
The Tinaroo Dam in Far North Queensland provides water to many crops making the Atherton/Mareeba region one of the most productive in Queensland.
More can be done to ensure we are capturing water and opening up new areas that will produce high quality food production.
Just add water 💧

I am on the road this week talking to Queenslanders. 
I spent this morning in Cairns where I met up with Jarrod Bleijie MP to highlight the State Government’s Budget failure to deliver vital services directly affecting small and family businesses.

Beautiful winters day at Kilcoy Race Club Inc. for cup day. Great to showcase the best of country racing & burgers to Tim Mander MP - State Member for Everton and Tim Nicholls MP.

Very excited and pleased today to see my nephew Ryley leave hospital after a very long hard 35 days. 
Ryley is now settled into Leukaemia House for his next stint as a day patient. The Leukaemia Foundation have been an excellent support for his mum and dad. 
Massive thank you to all the wonderful Doctors and Nurses who have looked after Ryley so well from QAS, Emergency in Kingaroy, LifeFlight, Toowoomba Base, and Princess Alexandra Hospital. Code yellow, bed block and strain of the Heath system is real. 
Please consider giving blood and saving a life like Ryley’s.

I have stood alongside South Burnett families and called on the Queensland Government to fund a full time Pediatrician for the South Burnett for far too long.
The community worked tirelessly to lodge a Petition and still the Labor Government and their 2021 State Budget has ignored the needs of our community.
