Pauline Hansons Visits Gold Coast
Cost of living, law and order, infrastructure spending and bringing down the price of electricity were the major topics of discussion on Queensland Senator Pauline Hanson’s visit to the Gold Coast.
Senator Hanson met with locals and small business as she made her way through the Gold Coast stopping in at Mudgeeraba, Oxenford, Hope Island and Upper Coomera.
“What I am hearing is the big issue for people on the Gold Coast is the cost of electricity and roads,” Senator Hanson said.
“It’s the same all over Queensland and Australia, that’s why One Nation is fighting the tired old parties for more coal fired power stations so we can do something about these absurd electricity costs.”
Senator Hanson was also concerned about the pressure being placed on infrastructure and essential services from population growth.
“The Gold Coast is growing and its highways, railways and bridges need urgent upgrades,” Senator Hanson said.
“When it comes to developing infrastructure on the Gold Coast I think the duplication of the Jabiru Island bridges should be a priority.”
“We also need to look at providing more assistance to the police force. I’m hearing there is a shortage of officers, and a lack of resources such as police cars that really need to be addressed.”
Senator Hanson also met with One Nation’s Gold Coast candidates for the upcoming state election to get their take on the issues effecting Queensland.
Brenden Ball will be standing in the seat of Broadwater, Andrew Liddell in the seat of Mudgeeraba, Darrel Lane in the seat of Theodore and Ronald Pigdon in the seat of Coomera.
“I’m very proud to have such a strong One Nation team representing the Gold Coast,” Senator Hanson said.
