Out on the campaign trail, Independent Federal candidate for the seat of Groom Suzie Holt has been inundated with stories from residents of Groom who are suffering due to out-of-touch Federal policies. “Everywhere I go, people are telling me about their struggles related to unemployment and major delays in accessing health, disability and aged care.”
While the major parties squabble in the media, the people are concerned about how policies will affect them in their everyday lives. The issue of coal vs renewable energy is a case in point. “Listen to the Acland mine workers from Oakey who have not had their concerns about job security addressed by either the Federal or State governments – people need certainty to make decisions about their lives”.
People are also deeply concerned about the possibility of the Federal LNP Government extending the use of the Indue card to the Electorate of Groom as requested by the local State LNP branch. “People are already struggling to survive. The idea of the Federal Government making their lives even harder by bringing in the Indue Card is incomprehensible.”
