Seniors bend the ears of pollies

RESIDENTS at Carlyle Gardens took the festive season as a chance to get a little political with a Christmas morning tea with the region's LNP politicians.

The pollies were quizzed on a wide range of topics while residents at the Bargara retirement village sipped cups of tea.

"The major concerns were in relation to the rising cost of living, the worries in relation to Queensland Health and obviously some safety issues with the loss of the Bargara 1 and 2 Neighbourhood Watch groups," Member for Bundaberg Jack Dempsey said.

The morning tea was also a chance for Carlyle Gardens residents to meet LNP candidate for Burnett Stephen Bennett.

Mr Dempsey, Mr Bennett and Federal Member for Hinkler Paul Neville all spoke about rising debt and the importance of senior citizens' contributions.
