LETTER: Dempsey failed Bundaberg region

JACK Dempsey is running for mayor.

Poor Mr Dempsey just does not get it, being dumped with a swing of 19% against him at the last state election.

Why is simple, because Mr Dempsey has done what every other LNP politician, State or Federal has done for Bundaberg and the local electorates, nothing, simply nothing.

Mr Dempsey had the honour of being a Minister of State and yet delivered nothing of consequence in both terms of office for Bundaberg: and I emphasise the word Bundaberg, his electorate.

Now Mr Dempsey wants to head the Bundaberg council as mayor, the exact area he failed so spectacularly as a State Minister.

He only had to represent Bundaberg, nearly the smallest electorate in Queensland.

Poor Jack now states he is going to energise the economy of Bundaberg with a tourist park for travellers.

This idea has been pushed for several years and must be noted, it is not Mr Dempsey's idea for a start.

Mr Dempsey should have got energised while in parliament and now wants another cushy job on the public purse as mayor.

Bundaberg should have been awash with projects and infrastructure but as usual, we were taken for granted by Mr Dempsey and the LNP.

Sorry Mr Dempsey, but Bundaberg needs to be led out of the dark, not over a cliff.

Then there is an incumbent Member for Burnett who is watching the current Member for Bundaberg (Labor) delivering on all election promises in Bundaberg and the Burnett and now freezing electricity charges for five years while his government put charges up 43%.

Now a failed state minister wants to lead the Bundaberg council in the exact area of his failures, Bundaberg.

I do hope the people of Bundaberg remember why they dumped Mr Dempsey in the first place.
