Happy New Year to both the folks of Moreton Bay and Queensland.
This coming year will mark what we all hope will be a new direction in Local Council for all areas of Queensland.
I’ve been saying that the “Big Show” has started and there are a number of legal matters going on behind the scenes as we speak as certain people such as power brokers and Councillors are jockeying for positions and trying to knock others out of the running for Council.
We’ve also seen one Candidate involved in endorsing a hate page set up to undermine me only then to take his comments down trying to hide his actions.
The real worry for everyone is that Moreton Bay will also have many of the current Councillors who were investigated by The Crime and Corruption Commission of Queensland (CCC) for donation scandals and secret trusts, will all be running again for Council – if this doesn’t show you how damaged our Local Government system is and the uselessness of the officials who are charged to look over it, then nothing will.
It’s also very telling that since the CCC have started looking into the Moreton Bay Regional Council that everyone has now gone quiet, they are all hoping to weather the storm until the next election is run, somehow I don’t think being quiet is going to work, the damage has already been done and I believe that further action by the CCC will take place.
Even with a newly appointed administrator to watch over Council behavior nothing is going to stop anyone from lodging law suites, they have become a way of life now to both tarnish a persons reputation and at the same time quiet them up from speaking out, I’ve already seen my fill of these ridiculous threats and actions and I believe the power brokers now know it will take more than a few legal threats to stop my campaign running for Mayor of Moreton Bay.
In my case I’ve now lost count of the unidentified hate pages that have been set up to try and undermine me and you will see very soon that I’m about to take steps against a number of people to put a stop to it. I’ve tried to appeal and reason with them and that just hasn’t worked, now I will follow legal measures to both reveal who these people are and also put a stop to it.
We don’t need people who hide their identity, hide in shadows and where they live, this isn’t politics this is hate and lies.
Yes our political system in Queensland is broken and we badly need good honest people who are willing to work hard and change the lives of families and communities for the better instead of greedy ambitious people who use our vote and our trust for their own futures, it’s been going on now for many many years.
Enough of the doom and gloom and I truly hope your New Year will be both prosperous, safe and happy.
Candidate for Mayor of Moreton Bay.
