Responded By: Hon Desley Boyle MP on 2/09/2010

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of Queensland wish to bring to the attention of the House that the City of Townsville be divided into divisions of equal number of registered voters/residents within each division, and only one elected representative for each division.


Your petitioners, therefore request the House to implement the abovementioned divisional system for the City of Townsville and this must be in place for the next local government elections to ensure transparency, local representation and direct accountability of elected councillors.
