“Like most Queenslanders, I became disillusioned with the poor representation and national agendas presented by the major political parties at the expense of our great state. I decided to get involved and take the opportunity to make some real change. I have a strong focus on personal freedoms and protection of Queensland jobs and see a future filled with confidence, particularly looking to the Creative Industries and talents of our youth to grow our Queensland economy.”
“We have an opportunity to reverse the neglect and cuts made to the Arts and Creative Industries in this state.”
“The creativity of our youth is the only natural resource that the major parties have refused to mine, choosing instead to bury it back in the ground by discouraging creative industry and cutting funding to the arts. I have plans that are set to directly benefit the Longman electorate and Queensland as a whole.” Mr. Beck said.
