The Honourable Campbell Newman

State Cabinet to meet on Sunshine Coast

Sunshine Coast residents will have the opportunity to meet with Queensland Government Ministers when Community Cabinet meets in the region next month.

Premier Campbell Newman said it was a great time for locals to raise issues that affect the region.

“My Government is committed to governing for all Queenslanders and these meetings make sure we hear from the real people about real issues affecting the region,” Mr Newman said.

“The Sunshine Coast is such an iconic Queensland location and we’re keen to hear how we can continue to move the region forward through industries like tourism and construction, as we promised at the election.

“I would urge locals, business leaders and community groups to take this opportunity to speak directly to the Ministers about issues they feel are important.”

Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson said local constituents should contact her office as soon as possible to request a meeting.

“I welcome news of the upcoming Community Cabinet being held in the Maroochydore electorate,” Ms Simpson said.

“This is a great opportunity for local residents to talk directly to the Cabinet about issues that are important to them or relevant to the Sunshine Coast community.”

Member for Caloundra Mark McArdle said he hoped people in the Caloundra Electorate would take part in this innovative process.

“This is a great opportunity for Caloundra and Sunshine Coast residents, businesses and community groups to meet with Ministers and key Government officials to discuss a range of ideas, issues and topics,” Mr McArdle said.

Meetings with Ministers will take place on Sunday 22 June at Jubilee Hall, Maroochydore State High School.

Meetings on 22 June are by appointment only, and all members of the public are welcome to register their interest.
