15/01/2013

State Member for Pine Rivers, Mr Seath Holswich MP, has outlined his top priorities for the Pine Rivers electorate for 2013.

Mr Holswich stated that these priorities have emerged as important issues through his regular consultation with the local community, including his regular Mobile Offices and the 2012 Annual Pine Rivers Survey.

"These issues will be getting a lot of attention from me during 2013," Mr Holswich said. "They are issues that the Pine Rivers community have told me are important, and I will be working towards positive outcomes for Pine Rivers in each of these areas during 2013."

Mr Holswich's top 5 local priorities for 2013 are:

1. Tackling Cost of Living Issues
Continuing to work with businesses and residents on ways to reduce the rising costs of living and costs of doing business

2. Jobs Growth in our Local Economy
Supporting local businesses to bring more jobs into Pine Rivers

3. Addressing Hooning and Anti-Social Driving
Working with local police and our community to educate our community on hooning issues and to see a reduction in anti-social driving and hooning behaviour

4. Youngs Crossing
Continuing to work closely with Moreton Bay Regional Council, Department of Transport and Main Roads and Federal Government representatives to confirm a preferred option for a Youngs Crossing Bridge and to move towards finding a funding solution

5. Developing the Local Tourism Industry
Closely linked with jobs growth, helping to drive tourism growth in our region, particularly in the Dayboro Hinterland region

Mr Holswich will progressively announce plans in each of these areas in coming months and will record his progress in addressing each of these areas on his website (www.seathholswich.com), on his "Report Card" page.

Mr Holswich acknowledges that there are many other important priorities that will also need addressing in the coming year.

"This is not an exclusive list," Mr Holswich said. "I will still be working hard on other areas including developing stronger schools, achieving positive environmental outcomes, improving our local transport network."

"However, these top 5 priority areas will be areas that I will be giving extra focus to in 2013."
