Opposition leader to visit Gladstone
OPPOSITION leader Annastacia Palaszczuk is about to stop in Gladstone after spending the morning in Mackay.
Ms Palaszczuk will hold a press conference at Gladstone Area Group Apprentices office in Beckinsale St.
The leader will support local ALP candidate Glenn Butcher, who so far is up against independent Craig Butler, the candidate backed by retiring independent MP Liz Cunningham.
The LNP is expected to announce a Gladstone candidate soon, while the Greens have indicated it is likely they too will run a candidate.
