It was a joy to catch up with the wonderful people from Rosies - Friends On The Street tonight and thank them for all the good work they do in Cairns. I know how hard it is for many people in Cairns and it was great to be able to thank Rosies and wish them all the best on their 25th anniversary.

It is a joy to see Trinity Bay State High School receive $6 MILLION for two new undercover basketball courts, gym and associated facilities, so the certificate for $35 000 for extra storage space was a bit of an ant-climax for Mr. Woodcock today. As the local MP it is so great to see this spending on a local school. Well done T-Bay! #PuttingCairnsFirst

We must stand against the corrupt ‘corporate sponsored politics’ of the major parties. You know the big southern corporations have not bought my vote and that I am here for the 99 per cent, not the 1 per cent. #PuttingCairnsFirst

Edge Hill State School is a first rate school and this week I had the chance to thank the students who represented me at the Edge Hill ANZAC Day service. A big thanks also to Mr. Steve Brech and Mr. Anthony Too for attending the service.

As we enter another bumper tourism season, it is encouraging to see business starting to reinvest in their assets. The Rydges Esplanade Tradewinds makeover is a $100M project. The sort of work is fantastic for our builders, plumbers, painters and the like. Let us hope the economic pickup continues and grows in strength (knock on wood). #PuttingCairnsFirst

BIG EXPENSIVE BILLBOARDS like those my corporate backed opponents have, are out of my price range.  I have traditional signs (corflute) though, so if you have a spare shop window to display one, please click on this link below. If you want a sign for your fence or verge, let us know as well (due to council regulations those ones cannot go up until an election is called). Let’s win this with people power!  https://robpyne.nationbuilder.com/volunteer

CLIMATE CHANGE is a massive issue and Cairns is very vulnerable. The heat and the fact we are a low lying city are major concerns. Higher sea levels and coral bleaching drive my calls for stronger action now! It would be really good to keep our city 'above' the average high water mark. My opponents may have more cash, but I am the only MP (in Queensland) with a proven track record on Climate Change and a conviction to act on the science. #PuttingCairnsFirst
