Senate Team on the road again on the Gold Coast

The Queensland Liberal National Senate Team will be on the Gold Coast on Monday highlighting to voters that they will have two votes to cast on election day.

The Team, led by Senator Ian Macdonald includes James Mcgrath, architect of Campbell Newmans election win in Queensland, former QCCI chairman David Goodwin, scientist and animal nutritionist Theresa Craig, and barrister Amanda Stoker.

We will be emphasising that for Tony Abbott to abolish the carbon tax it is essential that he has a Senate that he can work with and this will require a vote for the LNP in the Senate contest, Senator Macdonald said.

Gold Coast mayor, Tom Tate will brief the team on the cost impact on every Gold Coast ratepayer caused by Labors carbon tax on the councils landfill.

The Carbon Tax on the Gold Coast landfill will reach $6.2 million this year if Labor is returned to government, Senator Macdonald said.

Mr McGrath said he was keen to hear from the mayor about the impact of the failure of the current Labor government to commit any funding for the Commonwealth Games in 2018.

The Games are just so important to the Gold Coast and indeed, the whole Queensland economy, he said.

Candidate David Goodwin said that he had been following with concern the erosion problems on Gold Coast beaches.

I know how important the beaches are to the economy and small businesses of the Gold Coast, he said.

We want to have a look at some of the worst examples of the erosion.

Theresa Craig said that she was pleased to hear that Tony Abbott said in July that he would look at helping to fix up this erosion problem.

Explaining to voters the importance of their Senate vote is high on the list for candidate Amanda Stoker.

To do the things that have to be done, voters need to put the figure 1 above the line in the convenient Box B on the very long and complicated Senate ballot paper.

It is vitally important in this election that the Senate is able to support Tony Abbott in his efforts to bring prosperity and stability back to the Australian economy.

The Senate team will be at the Reedy Creek Landfill with Mayor Tom Tate at 10 am on Monday, August 26


At the Lifeguard Tower, End of Margaret Avenue Broadbeach at 1 pm with the Chief Lifeguard, Monday August 26
