SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESS

Now that we have flattened the curve of COVID-19 infection rate and kept the infection rate within the capabilities of our health system, it is time to get our economy running again. With as few as a dozen active cases, it is important that we get thousands of Queenslanders back to work. As restrictions start to ease, I would encourage you to support local businesses. Small business is the lifeblood of the Queensland economy and there is no better place to start than to shop locally. I recently did a ‘tour’ of coffee shops in the electorate (18!) to encourage them and to promote the ‘buy local’ concept. Many of our local businesses support community and sporting clubs so now is our chance to give something back to them.

THANK YOU TO OUR TEACHERS AND STAFF

Schools are back to full attendance (Woo Hoo!) which is another sign of returning to normal, albeit different. Thank you to our school teachers and staff who have had a challenging time providing a hybrid system of education. It has been stressful for everyone, including parents. I am looking forward to attending school events once again as soon as we get the go-ahead to gather in larger numbers.

EKKA LONG WEEKEND

With the ‘Ekka’ being cancelled this year, the Brisbane public holiday that normally falls on the Wednesday has been switched to Friday 14th August. This creates a long weekend which is a chance for us to get away for a few days and support the Queensland tourism industry. No other State relies on tourism as much as Queensland so it is important that we help them get back on their feet as soon as possible.
