ALP throws in the Towel in Coomera
Rowan Harrip, one of the youngest candidates in the upcoming State Election, is putting his fellow candidates on notice in the seat of Coomera.
In response to a comment made by Graham Higgs that he and the ALP are only working to decrease the ALP’s unpopularity in Coomera. Rowan Harrip, 24 said today “This simply displays once again that a minor party candidate who actually lives and cares for the region should get the chance to work and fight for the immediate future of the electorate. The choice is clear, either we allow another term with the current lack lustre LNP MP Mr Crandon, or elect a candidate that will work with passion and have the backbone to make a stand for the region in George Street”. Mr Harrip said today.
“The DLP will stand up for the working class, keep business in the region and help ease the pressure on our pockets. The people I have spoken to within my community want answers to significant issues such as increasing living costs that affect families, and the continuing congestion on our public transport and roads.
I believe that the people of Coomera need a real alternative and I will continue to communicate and work with my constituents in the coming months to ensure that Coomera has a voice in the Queensland Parliament that in recent times has been sadly missing.[end]
