Welcome to Issue 52.

With the State Election in few months, our feature story is all about one of our biggest issues, our main road in and out of Bribie Island, including Pumicestone Road, Old Toorbul Point Road and the long awaited funding to fix the dangerous intersection there.

As the only newspaper in our region, we have a duty to the community to get to the bottom of all our issues in our electorate, keep our politicians and candidates accountable and transparent for promises or claims made through out a campaign to the seat of Pumicestone. If we cannot get the answers, then it’s important to our readers and community to know the LOCAL News has tried very hard and when a candidate does not want to work with their local media outlet, there is absolutely nothing we can do. I will not waste our time anymore. It is you the readers who will make up your own minds.

Plenty of fantastic local news in this issue again and feel free to contact me if you have something you want say!

Warm Regards

Belinda Ferguson
