Principal Petitioner:

Andrew McDonald
80 St Kevins Avenue
Benowa Qld 4217

Total Signatures - 124

Sponsoring Member: Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 8/07/2013

Closing Date: 16/08/2013

Tabled Date: 20/08/2013

Responded By: Hon David Crisafulli MP on 17/09/2013

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House to the inappropriate and excessive remuneration increases awarded to councillors by the Local Government Remuneration and Discipline Tribunal.  Queensland councillors are paid four times more than their peers in NSW and Victoria.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to instruct the Local Government Remuneration and Discipline Tribunal to replace its mechanism for calculating councillor remuneration with one that delivers increases that are consistent with community expectation.
