LNP needs to show us it cares
LABOR candidate for Gympie Stephen Meredith is on the money when he says LNP infighting and backstabbing has left the region in limbo. Currently, our Member for Gympie, David Gibson, is on sick leave due to the infighting between Mr Gibson and his former LNP supporter Scott Elms. Mr Gibson has now decided to not stand for re-election after Mr Elms aired Mr Gibson's secret past to the media. Mr Gibson was caught stealing more than $7000 from the army.
LNP officials still to refuse to talk on the issue or give Gympie voters any indication of who they plan to replace Mr Gibson with. There is still no publicly announced time frame for pre-selection. If the LNP is serious about holding Gympie it needs to act quickly and inform the people, otherwise candidates like Mr Meredith will be in the box seat come election day.
