Active Petitions

Name Sandgate Foreshore Playground “Peebo and Dagwood Pl” – Sign HERE.

We the undersigned support the naming of the new playground on the Sandgate Foreshore at the end of 5th Ave Sandgate, Peebo and Dagwood Place.

Peebo (Peter Bissell) and Dagwood (David Bissell) were Brisbane’s favourite clowns and identical twins, with their partnership stemming back to many years spent in hospital wards, both living with cystic fibrosis and both being the beneficiaries of lung transplants. Despite their own health battles, they spent 20 years bringing joy to the lives of countless Brisbane residents. This naming would help Peebo and Dagwood’s motto “live life, love life and laugh” live on forever. Peter passed away in March 2020.

Mozzie Petition- Sign HERE.

We the undersigned petition Adrian Schrinner and the LNP Brisbane City Council to ensure that all necessary and available measures are taken in regard to mosquito management, so that residents can continue to live safely in their neighbourhoods and enjoy the great quality of life that Brisbane provides.

Why is this important?

With wetter than usual conditions forecast for the coming months, Brisbane residents simply can’t afford for Adrian Schrinner and the LNP Council to continue to overlook persistent mosquito problems in our suburbs.

A brief history of Adrian Schrinner and the LNP’s record when it comes to managing the mosquito population will explain why there is great concern. In 2018 The LNP sacked 12 experienced, full-time mosquito spraying staff only to be replaced by a couple of contractors. In 2019 Adrian Schrinner and his LNP team in Council underspent the mosquito spraying budget by $1.15 million. In 2020 Queensland Health figures showed that more Ross River fever cases had been recorded up to May this year than the annual totals for each of the previous four years.

Faced by a looming La Nina system over the pacific, locals are fed up with program underspends on this essential Council service while they see cases of mosquito-related diseases on the rise in their communities.
