Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Leader Of The Opposition Comes To The Whitsundays

Leader of the Opposition, David Crisafulli, held several public events in the Whitsundays on Monday this week, accompanied by Member for Whitsunday Amanda Camm.

The pair attended a special breakfast at Coral Sea Resort followed by an exclusive interview with Mackay and Whitsunday Life Newspaper.

They then headed into Proserpine and met with Councillors before being welcomed at the Tourism Whitsundays board meeting.

For the past 10 years Labor has been in power in Queensland, with Annastacia Palaszczuk Premier for the duration of that time.

David Crisafulli was nominated as Leader of the Opposition in November 2020 and will go up against current Queensland Premier Steven Miles in the State Elections which are due to take place later this year.

Locally, Amanda Camm will once again represent the LNP in her bid to secure a second term as our local member.

A Labor candidate for Whitsundays is yet to be announced.

Having made her bid public earlier this month, former Mayor of the Whitsundays, Julie Hall, is representing One Nation in the election.

“I am pleased to announce that I am running in the seat of Whitsunday with One Nation for the upcoming State election in October 2024,” she said.

Mackay and Whitsunday Life will be covering the upcoming election across our printed publications and also in a new series of videos on our YouTube Channel entitled ‘Life Publishing Group’ – Follow this QR code to watch the first video which features an interview with David Crisafulli and Amanda Camm in the first of our ‘Up Close And Political’ series.
