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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the use of rate payers funds by CEO James Gott in a private and personal defamation case against two Cassowary Coast regional ratepayers is a gross misuse of ratepayers monies which is estimated to currently exceed between one million and 1.8 million dollars and increasing weekly with further court proceedings still occurring.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to immediately dismiss the Cassowary Coast Regional Council and appoint an administrator with the powers to initiate proceedings to recover ratepayers monies used to date on the civil proceedings.
