Labor holds Cleveland back in 2015
Labor has left communities in Cleveland with very little to celebrate at the year’s end, after a year of backflips, bungles and broken promises.
Member for Cleveland, Mark Robinson said 2015 had been a year of stagnation under the Palaszczuk Labor Government which had reversed any progress the LNP had made over the previous three years to help Queensland reach its full potential.
“Labor has had since February to get its act together, but all we’ve seen so far are 80 reviews with pre-empted outcomes, recycled LNP policies and union bosses’ interference,” Dr Robinson said.
“Rego and power bills have skyrocketed, the government has enforced an infrastructure freeze, economic uncertainty is rife and Queenslanders are paying the price for an inexperienced, do-nothing Palaszczuk Labor Government.”
Dr Robinson said the Labor’s lack of plan for Cleveland was holding Queensland back, while the LNP had a real economic plan to unleash Queensland’s potential.
This is how Labor has neglected Cleveland:
• No funding for Redlands Hospital
• No funding for Eastern Busway
• No funding for major transport and main roads
• No funding for school infrastructure
There are no new significant projects or investments coming to Cleveland at this point in time.
“All Labor has delivered Queenslanders in 2015 are flawed election commitments and the broken promises are piling up.
“This is what happens when you don’t have a plan and make up policy on the run.
“It’s bad for the economy, bad for jobs and bad for Queensland.
“Queenslanders didn’t vote for this.”
