Media Release - Regional Qld tired of all the talk.
MEDIA RELEASE THURSDAY NOVEMBER 9 2017
Collective Action Group Flick’Em says Queensland deserves better and that voters can make a genuine difference at the ballot box on November 25.
The group does not endorse specific candidates, instead it aims to disrupt the dominance of the ALP and LNP in Queensland government and tilt power back to the regions via independent and minor party candidates.
Flick’Em Spokesman Michael Norris says voters who have had enough should send the major parties a message on Election Day.
“At Flick’Em, we say that Labor and the LNP have failed the state of Queensland on power and energy policy, that regional Queenslanders have been left behind by both parties and that neither of the major parties can be trusted to lead the state forward,” says spokesman Michael Norris.
“That’s why we’re saying to voters, take your ballot paper seriously and put the major parties last. Your vote is the only thing a professional politician will listen to and you can make them pay on election day,” Mr Norris says.
Flick’Em has this week run billboards in Rockhampton and Townsville, aired television and radio commercials and is set to begin print advertising this weekend.
“We want to challenge the power of the two major parties in this state because they have proven they just can’t be trusted to lead. Queensland voters have a real opportunity to make change at this election and we’re very active in spreading the word,” says Mr Norris.
“We’re saying to Queensland voters you can do something about sky-high cost of living, power prices and politicians who don’t listen. You can make them pay on election day. Put the majors last,” he says. -ends-
