My priority is the people of Redcliffe. I’ll always put Redcliffe first
- Scott Driscoll MPFriday, 19 April 2013Scott Driscoll MP, State Member for Redcliffe, has today announced that he has resigned his partypolitical membership of the Liberal National Party and will be dedicating his full energies to servingthe people of Redcliffe and his home town, from the Queensland Parliamentary Crossbenches.Mr Driscoll said he was just as passionate today about fighting for the best deal possible for thepeople of Redcliffe, as he was on the first day he was elected a year ago and he looked forward to anongoing productive, constructive and professional working relationship with Newman Governmentmoving forward.
“The actual seat I sit in while we are in the Parliamentary chamber is not nearly as important to meas the people of Redcliffe are. I’m taking this decision today a
fter talking to many of my fellowRedcliffe locals, firmly with the people of Redcliffe and our community at the very top of my priority
list,” said Mr Driscoll.
“I put my name forward at the state election in March last year because I want to serve the pe
of Redcliffe. When party political “brand wars” become the agenda of some, especially on the eve of
what is already proving to be a very nasty federal election campaign being executed by certainpeople, I believe you must act to put your local people
first and that is what I’m doing.
“I want to see Premier Campbell Newman and the Queensland Government succeed in helping turn
things around for our great state. Any decent and sensible person should have that same view andambition if they entered Parliam
ent for the right reasons. That’s why for me I will still be focused on
the interests of the Redcliffe people as their Member of Parliament and working each day as their as
their MP. I’ll work with the Premier, with Ministers and with anyone else who is ge
nuine andprepared to support Redcliffe and give Redcliffe people a fair go.
“Labor left our state in a total mess. Now all Labor seem to want to do is throw mud and attack
people on a personal and family level. Smear and slander based on gossip and rumour is not a validalternative to having a good policy platform and having an honourable intent to serve the
Queensland community. I don’t think they quite get that concept yet.
