The LOCAL Newspaper were not invited or aware the Premier was in Town. Apparently, this event was by ballot only and many seniors on Bribie Island were not successful in the Ballot system. That was disappointing to many residents. The LOCAL News does not know how the Ballot system worked in Ali King MP’s office.
A media release was sent after the event and Ali King Member for Pumicestone said the following on the general media release “it had been a tough year for local seniors so she was delighted the first Queensland Government Seniors’ Morning Tea could be on Bribie Island.
“Older Queenslanders built our State and our focus is on delivering services to help make Queensland a more age-friendly place,” she said.
“Our Bribie Satellite Hospital to be completed in 2023 will make a real difference by reducing older people’s travel for hospital appointments.
“I think that’s just what the doctor ordered for Bribie seniors!”
