Letters: Responsible budget from Queensland Labour

Letters: The ALP has brought down a responsible budget which is right for the times.

Yes, things are tight as far as money goes but, spending in vital areas will see jobs growth and with it better times for the people of the Bundaberg/Wide Bay region.

The money spent on infrastructure will also see the unemployment in this area come down and should give the states coffers a boost.

Training and education should see more places for apprentices and, with our health system getting a shot in the arm there should be more staff employed there too.

This ALP has put the meat on the bones so to speak and the public can now see where the money is going, unlike the previous government who would prefer to keep you in the dark - no secrets here, Mr Bennett.

This fresh and forward- thinking Palaszczuk government will attract new science and technology industries as part of its strategy.

This must be a first and, many overseas companies will open new companies in Queensland and this again should see job opportunities for the unemployed.

Leanne Donaldson is at the beginning of years of growth and expansion in almost every sector and I'm sure she will be the catalyst for future jobs growth in the whole region, unlike the previous member, Mr Dempsey who failed with a capital F.

The member for Burnett, Stephen Bennett MP, once again tries to paint a picture so perfect it's sad. Unfortunately Mr Bennett, life gets in the way.
