The Gold Coast seat of Broadwater is held by the ALP by a margin of just 2.2%. The seat is considered crucial to the LNP ending the ALP’s 20 year tenure in government in Queensland in the March 24 election.
Yet as important as Broadwater is to the prospects of the LNP forming government on 24 March they have just installed the third candidate to be indorsed to stand for the seat in less than 3 months.
The first candidate indorsed to stand for the seat was Richard Townson who was disendorsed after allegedly returning a breathalyser showing he was over the legal driving limit. Fair enough driving with a blood alcohol concentration above the legal limit is an offence and that sort of thing doesn’t stand well with the electorate.
Enter Gold Coast solicitor Cameron Caldwell.
