LGAQ Bush Council’s Convention – Roma
Great to engage with attendees at the LGAQ Bush Councils Convention in Roma.
The efforts of Local Councillors are noted and appreciated.
Their challenges and opportunities are many & varied and certainly different to SEQ and Coastal communities ie water storage and drought proofing, for a start.
Wonderful to see so many Qld State Agencies attending along with Minister Stirling Hinchliffe, LNP Deputy Leader, Tim Mander and Local Government shadow Anne Leahy.
Thanks also to LGAQ staff for their tremendous organisation and our hosts the Maranoa Council and the Roma community.
We also appreciated the attendance of Federal Minister Mark Coulton and senators Susan MacDonald and James McGrath
Two great quotes
Stuart McKenzie Mayor Quilpie
“you never get a second chance to make a first impression”
Assistant Commissioner QPS Mike Keating
“we spend more money as a nation on road safety than we do on defence”
