I rise to place on record my thanks and support for Jo-Ann Miller, the outgoing state member for Bundamba. Jo-Ann's been a fierce fighter for the people of Bundamba for over 20 years. Jo-Ann has been the people's voice. On behalf of the Oxley community, I say thank you to Jo-Ann for her service to our community, for her record and for all she has achieved. I'd like to wish Jo-Ann, her husband, Neil, and her family all the very best for her well-earned retirement.

On 28 March, the people of Bundamba have an opportunity to vote for Lance McCallum, somebody who will ensure that the community is represented. Lance has had a terrific record of standing up to the LNP cuts, the LNP sackings and also the LNP's plans to sell off our essential assets. He stood up to Campbell Newman and he'll stand up for the people of Bundamba. The choice is very clear: a vote for Lance McCallum for a strong Labor voice, or a vote for One Nation, a voice in the wilderness. I want to assure the people of Bundamba that they will have strong representation with Lance McCallum. As they know, a vote for One Nation is a vote for the LNP's plans to cut, sack and sell. On 28 March, I'm asking the people of Bundamba to support Lance McCallum.
