Federal Member for Fairfax

Media release

The Member for Fairfax and leader of the Palmer United Party, Clive Palmer, has said local community organisations in his electorate will again receive a donation drawn directly from the next instalment of his parliamentary salary.

Mr Palmer said he would continue to keep his promise to donate his parliamentary salary to community organisations in his electorate.

“The next instalment of my parliamentary salary will be drawn and donations will be made to more than 100 community organisations in the Fairfax electorate,” Mr Palmer said.

Community organisations to benefit from Mr Palmer’s electoral salary include Bli Bli Little Athletics Centre, Buderim War Memorial Community Association, Coolum Beach Quilters, Country Women’s Association at Kenilworth, Eumundi RSL, Indigenous Services, Maroochydore State High School, Nambour Indoor Bowls Association, Peregian Beach Community Kindergarten, RACQ Sunshine Coast Helicopter Rescue Service, Sunshine Coast Writers Group, Yandina Scouts and many, many more.

Mr Palmer said he was committed to giving back to his local electorate and community.

“Many Fairfax residents rely on these community organisations and not for profit groups in their daily lives and without financial or volunteer support many would have to close their doors or cease providing their important services,” Mr Palmer said.

“It is an honour to represent the Fairfax community and a privilege to be able to gift my parliamentary salary back to schools, sporting clubs, aged care facilities, veterans and RSL clubs, recreational groups, healthcare, environmental and search and rescue services.”
