Flynn candidates face off in Federal Election debate

OUR Flynn candidates are facing off today for the first time during the election campaign.

LNP sitting member Ken O'Dowd, ALP candidate Chris Trevor and Richard Love, candidate for Katter's Australian Party, will go head to head in Gladstone's own "Great Debate" at the GAPDL's Business Enterprise Luncheon.

Thursday is also the last day for candidates to nominate for the Federal Election - and supposedly we have a candidate from all of the known political parties, although we're yet to meet them here in Gladstone.

Mr O'Dowd and Mr Trevor have been making their way around town with policy and funding announcements, and both Mr Love and Mr Ensby are visiting today.

Palmer United Party Queensland Senate team leader Glenn Lazarus and Flynn candidate Steve Ensby will be speaking with local veterans at the Gladstone RSL on Thursday afternoon, while we're yet to hear about the movements of Greens candidate Serena Thompson and independent Duncan Scott.

The Family First party got back to us just before deadline with the details of their candidate, mother-of-five Renae Moldre, from Hervey Bay.
