O'Dowd's same-sex marriage survey given to shoppers, homes
JOANNE Dombrowsky has strong views on issues affecting our lives and well-being and was one of a group of Gladstone people who had the ear of Flynn MP Ken O'Dowd.
Ms Dombrowsky and others at the Sun Valley Road shops were given surveys by the federal MP on topical issues of dams, euthanasia, same-sex marriage equality and the 40-year debate clanger - daylight savings.
Definitely not worried about the old tale of "but it will fade the curtains", Ms Dombrowsky was quick to say "brilliant, bring it on" when asked about setting the clocks forward.
Mr O'Dowd is mailing out nearly 60,000 surveys to his Flynn constituents in an effort to gauge what they are thinking on these topical issues.
He wants people to reply quickly with their feedback.
"It will give me insight into their feelings on these issues," Mr O'Dowd said.
"I wanted the survey to be as straightforward as possible, so that I can get a definite figure on who supports these issues, and who doesn't," Mr O'Dowd said.
The survey includes a series of four questions covering a diverse range of topics, including marriage equality, euthanasia, and water infrastructure.
