  • Flooding in the north has been the focus of Robbie’s week.  He has been in Mount Isa, Cairns, Townsville, Cloncurry and Julia Creek.
  • He has been in contact non-stop with farmers who have been deeply affected by what is happening to stock, land and roads.
  • Next week he will be visiting Richmond and Cloncurry to survey damage and talk with constituents.
  • He has been working hard with all councils in affected areas.
  • Robbie also farewelled Steve Wollaston (69) in Mount Isa this week.  He was a prominent Mount Isa identity, involved in the RSL, a Vietnam veteran, was involved with Apex and Rotary.  He was also campaign manager for three generations of Katter’s. He will be sorely missed.
