April Update from Member for Mermaid Ray Stevens
As the rain continues to pour down over the Easier holiday break as I pen this missive, I feel absolutely heart-broken for all traders on the Gold Coast dependent on our vital tourism markets.  Not only did the Palaszczuk Government botch the quarantine of overseas travellers to stop the spread of COVID 19 from escaping into the Queensland community, she unashamedly shut down our biggest drive market of Brisbane for the three days before Easter in an illogical and politically motivated...

March Update from Member for Mermaid Ray Stevens
It is the first week of autumn and it still feels like summer in the sunshine state!  Here's hoping State borders stay open for Easter and the New Zealand 'bubble' comes back into action as soon as possible. Vaccine = Economic Uplift?

February update from Member for Mermaid Ray Stevens
I trust that everyone had a good Christmas break, enjoying all the great activities and adventures on offer in our own back yard!  The covid 19 pandemic trials and challenges look set to continue during 2021 and we as a community need to support each other to get through this with a positive focus.

Lifting restrictions needed to save businesses and jobs
Business confidence on the Gold Coast is experiencing a lower level of business sentiment than the State average and the long-term outlook for business remains blurred by uncertainty, especially as stimulus support begins to taper off said the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ). The latest Suncorp-CCIQ Pulse Survey of Business Conditions, a quarterly survey conducted to give a snapshot of business conditions in Queensland, found that while there was some recovery in the Sept...

October 2020 message from Ray Stevens, State Member for Mermaid
Well folks, this is it!  The future of Queensland for the next four years will be decided in 26 days' time.  The election period has officially started!   The economic recovery of Queensland after COVID will be front and centre of an LNP Government.  The Labor party's' 5 year reign in Queensland has seen the worst economic performance of any state in AUSTRALIA.  BEFORE COVID, we had the highest unemployment figure in Australia of any State and wi...
