Queensland Senator Amanda Stoker was in Cleveland on Saturday to officially open the campaign office of Liberal National Party candidate for Bowman, Henry Pike.
Mr Pike said that the opening of his campaign office in Shore Street West, Cleveland, represented the start of serious campaigning for the impending federal election.
“I’ve already knocked on thousands of local doors and have been actively engaging with local community organisations to understand the needs of the Redlands community,” Mr Pike said.
“The Redlands is my home, and I am fighting hard for better infrastructure and local services across our city.”
“The Federal Government has a critical budget to deliver later this month, and then we will be right into the business end of the election campaign.”
Mr Pike said that his focus will be to leverage the power of the federal government to meet local needs.
Assistant Minister to the Attorney General, Assistant Minister for Industrial Relations, and Assistant Minister for Women, LNP Senator Amanda Stoker addressed Liberal and National Party supporters at the office opening, outlining the choice facing voters at the upcoming federal election.
“The Morrison Government is working to protect and secure Australia’s economic and security interests in a challenging and changing world,” Senator Stoker said.
“The people of Bowman have a choice to make between the strong and responsible economic management of the Liberal and Nationals Government, and a Labor-Greens Government of higher taxes and even more bureaucracy.”
“It’s important that we elect people like Henry, who have the experience and passion to deliver local results for Redlands locals and solve the long-term challenges Australia faces.”
Mr Pike’s five-year-old daughter Laura assisted the Senator to cut the ribbon, officially opening the campaign office.
“Ultimately, it’s all about setting up our next generation to have an even better quality of life and even more opportunities than we’ve been able to enjoy,” Mr Pike said.
“I want to get the settings right for our Redlands families to be able to get ahead on not just get by.”
