A message from Michael Hart, State Member for Burleigh, May 2016
Hart Ready to Fight Labor's Spiralling Cost of Living
Member for Burleigh, Michael Hart MP, was today named the Shadow Minister for Energy, Biofuels and Water Supply in Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls' fresh-faced team.
"I'm looking forward to taking the fight to this frozen at the wheel Palaszczuk Government over the spiralling cost of living and the pressure it's putting on Queenslanders," said Mr Hart.
"We have people across the whole State doing it tough and the Government needs to be offering value for money in the services it is providing, not pushing up costs to balance their budget."
Prior to his election as the State Member of Burleigh in 2012, Michael worked in a number of industries including aviation, manufacturing and as a successful small business owner.
He was appointed to the State Infrastructure Planning and Natural Resources Parliamentary Committee under an LNP Government and has remained on the Committee elevated to Deputy Chair in 2015.
Overseeing the scrutiny of major legislation like the FIFO Inquiry, Transport Legislation (Taxi Services) Amendment Bill 2015 and the Water Legislation Amendment Bill 2015 amongst others holds Michael in good stead for the challenge ahead.
"I've worked with Tim since joining the LNP team in 2012 and I know he and Deb (Frecklington) will deliver real outcomes innovatively and consultatively rather than putting union mates ahead of hardworking everyday Queenslanders," he said.
"I have full confidence we are moving forward with an experienced team who will hold Labor to account and produce policies that advance the interests of all Queenslanders."
