Election Scorecard: Craig Wallace’s Townsville ad

Labor MP for Thuringowa (and Minister for just about everything) Craig Wallace has a 17% margin. He’s in one of the safest seats in the state. He barely even needs to advertise.

So why jump the shark and be filmed holding a puppy?

His ad is positive though. It talks about “delivering” for North Queensland and highlights projects “he has delivered”.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.

    1. I wouldn’t put that entirely down to him. Based on my experience, Wallace has some actual talent as a politician. He’s the only sitting Labor member from Townsville that we regularly have something to do with. Lindy Nelson-Carr was in our office today and had no idea where the toilets were. We’ve been there, as the city’s peak economic development body, in the same building, for 18 years.

  1. Hey, at least he has something to report. Our local member has decided the issue of the day is a proposal to have trail bikes in our state parks (he is against it). That is it. His letter points this out by repeating this idea 10 times, in slightly different ways.

    You’d think after 12 years in parliament he might have something else to report on.
