No excuses now so politicians can get region going

EDITORIAL: Politically speaking, the Fraser Coast now has all its ducks in a row with each of our state and federal members part of the serving government.

There are no more excuses for the Fraser Coast to stagnate.

This is an opportunity we have not seen for some years and it is one we may not see again for a long time.

When a new party takes government, there is a tendency to hear nothing but finger-pointing for several months if not years.

This was particularly rife in the early days of Campbell Newman's state government, when the frequently trotted-out response was to just blame everything on "the former Labor government".

But the people of the Fraser Coast do not want to hear it.

We want vigorous, accountable representation.

We want this region to finally get out of the doldrums.

Warren, Keith, Anne, Ted ... When Labor was in power, you told us it was the government that was stopping us getting where we want to be.

You told us that if you were elected, you would fight for us.

We will hold you to that.

You have the power. Now make sure you use it.
