Labor leader visits Gladstone three times in campaign
IT'S three times lucky for Gladstone ALP candidate for Gladstone Glenn Butcher who had the Opposition Leader visit Gladstone again while the electorate hasn't even had one visit from the premier.
Annastacia Palaszczuk and Shadow Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath joined Mr Butcher and his ALP supporters at Spinnaker Park on Thursday.
Ms Palaszczuk said she didn't want the port to be sold to an overseas company.
"We don't know what will happen with local jobs and the use of local equipment," she said.
"It is a David and Goliath battle."
Ms Palaszczuk said Labor was in a strong position to win the Gladstone electorate.
"We have a big chance here," she said.
"It's small steps one at a time in the fight of our lives."
Mr Butcher said Ms Palaszczuk's third visit to Gladstone spoke volumes.
"It shows the people of Gladstone the ALP is serious about them and about not selling the Port," he said.
"The Port has built the families in Gladstone for over 100 years and the only way to save it is to vote for the Labor Party."
