Hi! My name is Bruce Logan, your candidate for Cook in the 2024 Qld state election. I have lived and worked in Far North Queensland almost all my whole life. I’m a farmer now, but spent years serving my country before that.
People are asking why I am throwing my hat in with the KAP.
There are two reasons. Firstly, the KAP are heavy hitters. We get things done and don’t make a fuss about it.
Secondly, we fight for the people of the land, and small and independent businesses, householders trying to get by. People like you and me.
I believe the Far North is an uncut gem. I want to see our region grow and prosper. I believe in healing the divisions, and bringing people together once again as Australians. It’s one country, we should be one people.
I want to see farmers and fisherman get a fair go, and get politics out of land management. No more pandering to special interest groups.
And so much more!
If this sounds like the sort of thing you want to hear more about, please reach out to me.
This is our one chance to get the representation you deserve. Let‘s not blow it, FNQ!
