SE Queensland seats: Brisbane – Gambaro’s questionable deals on electorate office

Cameron Atfield reports in the Brisbane Times (25.6.16):

‘Outgoing Brisbane MP Teresa Gambaro went against departmental advice when she selected a new electorate office that was considered too expensive, poorly positioned and had insufficient disability access and visitor parking, documents released under Freedom of Information legislation have revealed.

‘The documents also revealed Ms Gambaro’s office was involved in direct negotiations with a Liberal National Party donor, the site’s developer, to use taxpayer funds to rent out the property.’

Meanwhile, the gay LNP candidate for Brisbane, Trevor Evans, directs preferences to the anti-gay Family First party.
