I'm Margaret Strelow your Independent Candidate in the 2024 State Election.
I am contesting the seat of Rockhampton, which takes in the City of Rockhampton and the town of Gracemere.
Many of you will know me already.
I served as Mayor of Rockhampton and later as Mayor of the Rockhampton Regional Council for over16 years (and one term as Councillor).
During my time as Mayor I oversaw a complete rejuvenation of Rockhampton and Gracemere.
I'm proud of the things that I achieved during that time.
But it is the future and opportunity to be the voice of our communities that has compelled me to nominate for this election.
We have had to fight for everything we have achieved. But the big things, the game changing things like cost of living, long-term jobs, better health services and working to reduce the serious issue of youth crime - these are State Government issues. That is where I believe I need to be.
I'm asking for your support to take the fight to Brisbane.
