As the only Independent Member of the Queensland Parliament, I believe that I hold a special position. And not for the reason that you may think.
Being answerable to the people of Noosa, and not a political party, is more than special. It is liberating and empowering for the people of our electorate.
Noosa has both the capacity and opportunity to create the future that it has always envisioned. One that is bold in researching ideas and trialling new ways in addressing our greatest concerns. We can share our journey with other Queensland communities as we join them in meeting the challenges that we face together.
As a Member of Parliament, I will use my position to negotiate partnerships and deepen our relationships to achieve long term solutions as opposed to short term fixes. I will discourage silos and work to bring everyone together in a united team effort to deliver good outcomes. I will speak independently, act boldly and always put Noosa first.
