ELECTION PROMISE BY A CONTENDER FOR THE NEXT LOCAL FRASER COAST ELECTIONS.ARE YOU A STARTER?THEN SEND US YOUR MESSAGE.

February 13th, 2011

Invest in Your Future

The unedited article is posted with no input or opinion from the editor


Help ensure that we elect better Councillors to the Fraser Coast Regional Council (FCRC) at the next elections.

If you desire a proactive Council that will provide us with –

Ø  A more realistic system of rates and Charges;

Ø  More transparent and responsive representation;

Ø  More accountability of where our money is spent;

Ø  More responsible use of Council money;

Ø  Opportunities for our children and grandchildren to have a better lifestyle.

Then we need your help to secure these results at the Council elections.

There are three (3) ways you can invest in the future of the Fraser Coast –

1.       Invest Your Time – Invest some of your time to talk to your friends and neighbours about what we are working to achieve. It is achievable if we all pull together. Also invest a little time to tell us about the issues that concern you and any solutions would like to see the Council implement. Help us to spread the word – there is a better way.

2.       Invest Your Energy – Through this year we need people to help deliver newsletters. If you walk for exercise or have some spare time and energy, you could be of great assistance to the cause by dropping off some newsletters along your way. The more we can deliver the wider we can spread the message that there is a better way.

3.       Invest Your Money – Just $10 to $20 each month will help us to continue to spread the word around the Fraser Coast. Think of pledging $10 – $20 each month as an investment. When we elect a new Council, the Councillors can vote to return the money paid by Wide Bay Water (WBW) to the FCRC back into the water and sewerage rates where it rightfully belongs. And this will mean a saving of at least $250 each year for you and every other user of the services.

It is a big job, there is no denying that, but with your help we can do it. Because we believe passionately that there is a better way for our Council to serve its people. We must make this potential into a reality before it is too late and we are forever condemned to be the poorest people of Queensland with too few employment opportunities, and too many expenses.

Please call Jim MacKellar on 0418732506 if you can be of assistance

TONY ABBOTT SPEAKER BREAKFAST RE-SCHEDULED

June 7th, 2010

Dear Members and Guests,


BREAKFAST IS NOW ON THURSDAY (NOT WEDNESDAY)
CONFIRMATION REQUIRED


CLICK HERE TO RECONFIRM YOUR SEAT

The interest in the Tony Abbott breakfast has been incredible.

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to put the breakfast back one day and it will now be held on Thursday, 10th June at 6.30am for 7am at the Hervey bay Boat Club.

To assist us in this, we are asking all members and guests who have booked to reconfirm their bookings for Thursday’s breakfast. To do this, simply email the Secretariat on admin@herveybaychamber.asn.au or CLICK HERE and confirm the number of seats you are wanting for Thursday’s breakfast.

If you have already paid for a booking and now cannot attend, please let the Secretariat know. You will receive a full refund and those seats will be reallocated.
Please note at this point we can not release any additional seats, however if you wish to be placed on a waiting list, please let the Secretariat know. Preference will be given to members.

Failure to reconfirm your seats will be taken to mean you no longer require those seats for Thursday.  Also, I remind you that if you have committed to attending (and have not paid), but do not show up on the morning, we will still seek full payment for your tickets.

Thursday’s breakfast will be a great breakfast and I am looking forward to seeing you there.

Regards
Bernard Whebell
President

TONY ABBOTT TO SPEAK AT CHAMBER BREAKFAST HERVEY BAY QLD

June 1st, 2010

Dear Members and Guests,

HAVE BREAKFAST WITH Mr Tony Abbott MHR,

the Leader of the Opposition


Wednesday, 9th June Just a quick email to let you know about an important breakfast to be held next week. On behalf of the local Hervey Bay business community, the executive of your Chamber has been actively pushing to get a number of senior federal politicians to come and visit us. As a result, I have managed to secure the Leader of the Opposition, Mr Tony Abbott MHR whom will join the Hervey Bay business community for breakfast next Wednesday, 9th June, at the Hervey Bay Boat Club. Details of the breakfast, once finalised, will be forwarded to you shortly and it is my expectation that this will be a well attended breakfast, so seats will be limited.

Regards, Bernard Whebell President
