To finish. A big week and over the weekend I will do separate posts on some of these, including that an inequity identified some 30 years ago regarding cross benchers has been finally addressed. This with the handing down of a decision in response to our PMM by the Independent Remuneration Tribunal that we shall get Parliamentary staff. For this MP, a ‘point fiver’ is instrumental. In both the increased level of holding government to account, and depth of wrinkles from the all-nighters!! 😂😂 This is just one of a couple more in efforts to effect systemic change that will ultimately address other inequalities and needed equity that you bring forward as part of frustrations. Talking of? Yes, I know we have all been frustrated lately by Telstra services dropping in and out. The upgrades in most areas are now completed; however Noosa Heads may still experience some difficulties until 15th March. In amongst the 4G outage, Facebook conundrum and this, did I manage to turn the smoke pouring from my ears into signals? I wish! 😊 Happy weekend everyone, and my apologies if I did not get back to some FB ‘tags’ whilst in Chamber. Please, if important or urgent, always call my office on 53193100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org so Lisa or Zac can respond promptly, and our CRM systems can capture! 👍 Sandy 🙏 PS. Did I say how much I love our home/community/electorate/shire/you guys? I did, however, its Friday so am allowed to duplicate!! 🤛💝 ... See MoreSee Less

MEDIA ABC Sunshine Coast - It has been deeply disappointing that yet again careless driving has led to a beach rollover. However, the actions of a few should not warrant a blanket response impacting all, instead targeting offenders should be priority. Accountability, responsibility and consequences are the theme for 2021, and part of is the needed integrated systems between QPS and QPWS to quickly identify and manage these offenders, which requires those mobile ‘black spots’ to be addressed. #enoughisenough#roadsafety#nomoreexcuses
