Labor crushes first homeowner dream

Fri 22 Jun 2018

LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander is warning the dream of owning a home could be crushed with new taxes and grant cuts adding about $8000 to the bottom line.

Mr Mander said Labor Treasurer Jackie Trad cut the First Home Owners' Grant from $20,000 to $15,000 in last week's State Budget.

"Ripping away $5000 from potential new home owners is not what Queenslanders need to deal with right now," Mr Mander said.

"Labor's new waste tax and an increase to land taxes will also add about $3000 to cost of building a home.

"That's effectively $8000 added to the cost of Queenslanders owning their first home, and at a time when housing affordability is a major concern."

Action needed now to bust congestion

Tue 22 May 2018

At a busy road in Everton Park, LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said congestion is worsening across Southeast Queensland under Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor.

"Motorists in Southeast Queensland have been reduced to a crawl and are taking longer to get home each and every day," Ms Frecklington said.

"This is why I am launching an online survey to take the pulse of motorists and bust congestion."

"Congestion is getting worse and we want to hear from motorists about traffic conditions from their perspective."

LNP Shadow Treasurer and local Member for Everton, Tim Mander said easing congestion in Southeast was a priority for the LNP.

"The number one complaint I hear from commuters is that they are spending too long stuck in traffic when they are trying to get home to their families," Mr Mander said.

"Much more needs to be done to fix congestion in Southeast Queensland and that is why we want to hear from everyday Queenslanders about congetion hot spots in their own backyards."

Speed cameras should be about saving lives and road safety - not revenue raising

Sun 14 Jan 2018

In 2015, the Palaszczuk Labor Government removed the requirement for mobile speed cameras to display a 'speed camera in use' sign.

Labor are treating Queenslanders like cash cows and should abolish covert speed cameras.

To change behaviours on our roads we must educate drivers and make sure they are aware of the road rules.

Making drivers feel like they have been trapped by a speed camera does nothing to achieve road safety outcomes.

Labor's higher taxes and record debt to continue under Trad

Sun 17 Dec 2017

Labor's deceit will be laid bare tomorrow, with the mid-year budget update set to include a raft of new taxes and no plan to pay off Queensland's nation-leading record debt.

Deputy Liberal National Party Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander said Labor had sprung four confidence-killing, jobs-destroying taxes on Queenslanders on the eve of the state election.

"These taxes are 'job killers', as highlighted by Queensland Property Council executive director Chris Mountford," Mr Mander said.

"These taxes will further drive down business confidence here in Queensland, which is already at almost record lows.

Despite these four new taxes, announced just two days before the election, Labor still has no plan to pay down Queensland's nation leading debt."

New Shadow Cabinet told to 'earn it' for Queensland

Fri 15 Dec 2017

Liberal National Party Leader Deb Frecklington today unveiled her new Shadow Cabinet.

"When elected Liberal National Party Leader three days ago, I said Tim and I would push the reset button," Ms Frecklington said.

"Today, I take the first step by unveiling our Shadow Cabinet to keep Labor to account and that will work their butts off to earn back the trust of Queenslanders.

It is a mix of experience and new faces.

I have given them all one message - earn it.

Earn the trust of Queenslanders.

Earn the respect of Queenslanders.

I have communicated to my new team, my first priority is to unite Queensland with a team that represents all of Queensland."
