I'm determined to see our locals roads get the work they desperately need. 🚧The Brisbane Labor team has a plan to invest over $1 billion in road infrastructure in the next year to bust congestion, repair local streets and keep our motorists safe!This means finally addressing rat running, fixing intersections like Wakefield Street and Brighton Tce and full funding the Beams Road upgrade project. ...

I have been contacted by a number of people about the Water Quality Testing Results in Cabbage Tree Creek for Enterococci levels. I've been extremely frustrated in my dealings with Council over this issue.The latest test results show extremely high levels recorded on February 16 coinciding with around 100mm of rain that day. This was reflected at every test sites around Brisbane.I’ve written to Urban Utilities to ask if the Sandgate Sewage Treatment Plant went into bypass on this date due to the rain, and if so how was that notified. I certainly didn’t receive any notification. If this occurs I think a public release of this information should occur. When the treatment plan is operating under normal conditions only UV treated grade A recycled water is released into the creek. I’ve also written to Council’s CEO calling for a total overhaul on the way testing is carried out and how public notification is undertaken. I don’t receive anything from Council when these tests occur and any signage that is put out is totally inadequate and not timely. Regular retesting needs to occur when high levels like we saw on February 16 occur. It’s been 12 days since that test and we don’t know what the levels are now. Too many tests have also been missed over the last few months. The test site at Emily Street in Deagon is consistently high in levels of Enterococci compared to other sites and I’ve still not been given an explanation as to why this could be.I’ve not been alone in trying to get council to better understand and mitigate against the causes of these spikes and also being more upfront about high levels when they occur. But obviously more needs to be done.As further updates become available I’ll be keeping locals informed. ... See MoreSee Less

It's time we saw Council make a decent investment in our suburban sporting infrastructure. 🎾 🏏After securing a precinct masterplan that includes better lighting, paths, more grass sport fields and greatly improved parking and accessibility it's vital the project is not left behind. The Brisbane Labor team will get it done!Tracey Price and Labor have announced that we will spend less on inner-city projects and focus on the suburbs again. We don't need hundreds of millions spent on a single inner-city park, Victoria Park, we need that funding shared across Brisbane. ... See MoreSee Less

Two years ago our local community was hit with one of the worst natural disasters in memory.With hundreds of properties inundated in just hours, locals looked for high ground and to help out those around them. The way our community pulled together makes me proud to be a Northsider. Even today, the impact of the floods can still be seen in our suburbs. It's been a tough road for many locals. The floods also highlighted just how poorly prepared this Council was for an emergency. With warnings that were late to non-existent, under resourced Sandbag depots, inadequate drainage infrastructure and evacuation hubs that were out of reach, the preparation and response was just not up to scratch.This is why I've been so vocal about our suburban drainage infrastructure and why this upcoming election is so important. It’s also important to remember the LNP cut funding for a local SES depot last year, hoping no one would notice. We need a Council that's going to take drainage infrastructure seriously. We need a Council that is willing to invest in our suburbs. We need a Council that cares. ... See MoreSee Less

King George Square used to be the place to be, with fountains, green space and trees that kept it feeling cool, even on the hottest Queensland day. 🌴Now the LNP have turned it into a concrete commercial sales floor. Brisbane Labor will return the peoples place to the people! ... See MoreSee Less
