EDITORIAL: Opposition health spokeswoman Jo-Ann Miller made a brief visit to the Fraser Coast on Wednesday in an apparent bid to get one up on Campbell Newman before his launch of the Queensland Plan in Hervey Bay today.
Her simple message was that Can Do, in fact, Has Not.
Hardly surprising, one would think, particularly as he is the government and she the opposition.
She did, however, hit the nail on the head when she said locals were concerned about health, education and jobs.
What we are seeing with the arrival of Ms Miller and Mr Newman is the early birth pains of what will be a lengthy but vitally important election campaign.
We should go to the polls between March and June next year. That's not as many sleeps as one might think.
We need to be putting pressure on our pollies and candidates early in the process to extract the strongest promises we can from them.
Then we need to make sure that they deliver.
Our hope is that you'll make the issues known through letters to the editor and in online and Facebook comments.
These people read this stuff.
Be strong, be clear and make your voice heard.
