2020 State Election
Make your vote count for Ipswich
The Ipswich Leaders Alliance welcomes the funding and commitments made to date that will support the future growth and needs of the city of Ipswich. However, we are still yet to receive full commitments for a number of critical priority projects and policies. We will publish a regular update of funding commitments made by all parties.
Every care has been taken to ensure the information is accurate at the time of publication (including contacting candidates and party leaders). The Ipswich Leaders Alliance accepts no responsibility for any errors, omissions or changes leading to such information being incorrect. As election commitments change over time, no responsibility is accepted for accuracy of content. Please contact the Ipswich Leaders Alliance to provide additional information or to clarify omissions.
2020 A Fresh Start for Ipswich
The performance of all levels of government significantly influences the future of a city and the opportunities available to tomorrow’s generation.
The year 2020 is set to become a landmark year in Ipswich’s history. It’s the year the community elected a new council after 20 months in administration and it’s the year of a defining Queensland state election.
This next election presents an imperative and timely opportunity for candidates and political parties to demonstrate their genuine commitment to the people of Ipswich.
The Ipswich Leaders Alliance is an apolitical collective of leading peak representative bodies and business leaders who are dedicated to ensuring local needs are genuinely understood and met.
We engage across all levels of government to advocate for the game-changing projects and major policy reforms that will make a real difference to our city, now and into the future.
The Ipswich Leaders Alliance is convened by Mayor Teresa Harding and was established as an outcome of her 100 Day Fresh Start Plan.
A flourishing city needs real commitments
We are the oldest provincial city in Queensland and also the fastest-growing city in Queensland. Our Gross Regional Product has increased by 33% since 2009 and our population will double to over 500,000 by 2040.
As our city continues to grow, a mix of essential infrastructure, investment and policy settings will be required to ensure Ipswich realises its potential and maintains its competitive advantage and liveability.
The Ipswich Leaders Alliance will be advocating for game-changing infrastructure, major policy reforms and localised projects that will ensure our city continues to go from strength to strength this next decade and beyond.
