Help me get action from the Queensland Labor Government on the North Coast Rail
The Liberal National Coalition Government has committed $390 million to the duplication of the railway line between Beerburrum and Nambour. When completed this will deliver a faster, more reliable and more frequent service of trains between the Coast and Brisbane to get you home sooner and safer. But the Queensland State Labor Government have allocated only $156 million or 20% of the cost of this duplication, despite the fact that the rail is wholly owned and operated by the State. If the Queensland Labor Government cared about the Sunshine Coast, they’d be meeting us halfway for what is after all a State Government project.
Sign my petition to send a message to the Queensland Labor Government to get on with their job and deliver a fair funding deal for North Coast Rail today.

Help me Bust Congestion on Caloundra Roads
Every day, the roads around Caloundra are choked with congestion, and the State Government is doing nothing to help.
Enough is enough.
In the past two years I’ve worked hard to deliver $3.4 billion from the Federal Government to add extra lanes to the Bruce Highway, and upgrade congested intersections between the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. But locals know its just as important that we bust congestion on the State Government roads around Caloundra.
We need to work together to find a solution and put pressure on the Queensland State Government to do something about Caloundra’s gridlock now. Help me send the Queensland Government a message by signing my petition today.

Say No to Council's Casino
I am calling upon all Sunshine Coast residents and business people to take a public stand against the construction of a casino in Maroochydore's new SunCentral Development by signing my “Say No to Council’s Casino” petition. Fill in your name and details in the boxes below and click 'done' to complete your petition.

I believe that the Council’s plan to change the character of the Sunshine Coast by building a casino at their Maroochydore development is emerging as one of the biggest threats to the future of our community. A casino on the Coast would add to the cost of living pressures on many of our hard-working families, increase crime and anti-social behaviour, and drive up drug and alcohol abuse. This plan risks driving more family breakdowns, and increasing rates of mental and physical ill health.
Family life is difficult in modern times, we don't need to compound those difficulties by establishing more mechanisms of misery. I have spoken to many local people about this at meetings around our community and the feedback I have received tells me that Sunshine Coast residents do not want a casino here. We are not the Gold Coast, nor should we want to be. I strongly encourage everyone to sign my petition and to get involved
