Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry has called on the Palaszczuk Labor Government and on local state members to deliver on their election promises in CQ after promising hundreds of millions of dollars for projects during the campaign.
Ms Landry said she was surprised to see the amount of election promises made by Labor in CQ.
“The Labor Party threw the cheque book at Central Queensland in the lead up to the October 31st, without delivering a budget. It shows they must’ve been worried about the election result in an area they have neglected for decades.
“For their sake and the sake of all of the people in CQ, they had better deliver on every single promise because I will be holding them to account every day for four years,” Ms Landry said.
Ms Landry said she expects local Labor members to continue to play games with funding.
“I expect the local state members to play their usual tricks when it comes to funding for projects.
“They always seem to dedicate funding for a project, realise it’s not enough and berate the federal government to allocate funding to fix their own mistakes. We have already seen the tantrums put on by the Member for Keppel for years over Great Keppel Island.
“People in CQ are a lot more switched on than the Labor Party give them credit for, and they will be rightly angry and disappointed if the same election promises are recycled in 2024,” Ms Landry said.
