LNP slams baseless attack on Ted Sorensen
Friday 29 March, 2019
LNP Member for Hervey Bay Ted Sorensen has the complete and unequivocal support of his party, LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said today.
Ms Frecklington said the claims made by Labor Member for Maryborough Bruce Saunders that Mr Sorensen had been told to step down were a politically-motivated lie.
“Ted Sorensen has dedicated himself to serving his community as a councillor, Mayor and Member of Parliament,” Ms Frecklington said.
“No one cares more about Hervey Bay than Ted.
“Bruce Saunders’ claims are untrue and his slurs about Ted’s age are appalling.
“Ted has given a lot to Hervey Bay and he has much more to give.”
Ms Frecklington said Mr Sorensen was campaigning hard for lower electricity prices in Hervey Bay, fighting to protect local jobs and backing measures to keep his community safe.
“This week Ted and the entire LNP team voted to introduce a public child sex offenders’ register to let parents know if there is a pedophile in their suburb,” Ms Frecklington said.
“Bruce Saunders told his local paper that he sympathised with parents – and then voted against the register when he got to Parliament.
“Bruce Saunders talks tough in Maryborough but he is gutless when he gets to Brisbane.
“Maryborough deserves a better Member than Bruce Saunders.”
