Newman to make coffee stop
QUEENSLAND LNP leader Campbell Newman's coffee stop in Rockhampton tomorrow afternoon will not be open to the public.
The politician, commonly known as Can Do Newman, will be entertained by the party faithful at the Coffee House cafe in William St during his whistlestop visit to the city.
Yesterday The Morning Bulletin explained that, because the cafe was normally closed on Sunday afternoons and would be opening especially to host the former Brisbane Lord Mayor, there would be an entry price of $22.
Former LNP candidate Don Kane, campaign manager for newly adopted Keppel candidate Bruce Young, said the event was fully subscribed and there would be no opportunity for the public to meet Mr Newman.
Rockhampton is the last stop on a tour of regional Queensland by Mr Newman and he is expected to brief media on his priorities for the region.
Meanwhile, Mayor Brad Carter yesterday issued a priority list for State Government election candidates.
High on his list of priorities is the development of industrial land, flood immunity for highways, a third road and rail bridge, completion of the Great Keppel Island EIS, funding to support economic development and backing for an NRL stadium.
