Federal Member for Fairfax

Media release

Federal Member for Fairfax, Clive Palmer, has today said that Ted O’Brien should run for the local Council instead of the federal seat of Fairfax.

Mr Palmer said Ted O’Brien’s only positions have been on local Council types of issues and not Federal matters.

“It looks like Ted doesn’t seem to know the difference between local Council and Federal politics,” Mr Palmer said.

“Even when he does make his position clear on federal issues, he will only be able to say what the LNP tells him to say.

“Ted won’t have any fresh ideas for Fairfax, just recycled LNP propaganda.”

Mr Palmer said Ted O’Brien has stood in four previous elections and lost them all.

“If Ted is so concerned about local Council matters then I’ll vote for him if he runs in the next Council elections,” he said.
