Climate action and Community plan


POSITIVE, FRESH and motivated by Labor values: that is the message the QPRC Labor team brings to the Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council local government election scheduled for December 4.

Labor values —fairness, equity and social justice — will underpin the policy direction of the QPRC Labor.

Below is a partial representation from the brochure posted to individual mailboxes:
