'Life's just peachy in Gladstone'

IS GLADSTONE really missing out?

It depend on who you talk to.

For the Davies of Emmadale, life in Gladstone is just peachy.

They have all the services they need; they are happy.

“People don’t know how good they have it here in Gladstone,” Dan Davie said.

“The hospital is really good, wonderful childcare and bulk billing doctors,” Sherri Davie said.

She said that compared to Brisbane where it is near impossible to find a bulk billing doctor, Gladstone has it good.

Unconcerned about policies and the current election race, both Mr and Mrs Davie have said that Gladstone was not missing out and the current election campaign had covered all the bases.

“Both parties seem the same to me. It really doesn’t bother me because they will say anything they want for votes,” Mr Davie said.

Like any young family, education and health are prominent issues but for the Davies with two young daughters, Gabriella, 8 and Emily, 4, they are not fazed.

The family has no major election concerns regarding Gladstone.

“They (the campaign) have covered the whole spectrum and I have other things to worry about.”
