Federal Member for Capricornia is making true on her promise to listen to the people of Rockhampton, with the flood levee phone survey starting at 4pm on Monday June 5.

“The objective of the survey is very clear – I want to find out, in a transparent and unbiased way, what the people of Rockhampton want to pursue for flood mitigation,” Ms Landry said.

“We have taken measures to ensure we cover a range of suburbs and demographics in the Rockhampton Region local government area.

“We have kept the questions simple and have not used language that leads people to answer in a certain way.

“A local team will be undertaking the survey and they have all been provided with training to input data,” she said.
