for insurance policies to be made easier to understand and also to provide a standard
definition of flood covers in future natural disasters. Motion moved by Milton Dick
and seconded by Toni Gibbs. Everyone at the meeting applauded this motion.
Toni Gibbs suggested that maybe there was a need for other branches to submit
similar motions to the conference.

A Brodersen to T Gibbs: "Why did you come to our last branch meeting and say you
were going to run in the pre-selection despite the pressure you said you were
receiving, only to then pull out of the race a couple of weeks Later?

T Gibbs replied: ‘ I was still intending to run up until I pulled out. it was not until I
started getting pressure from the Prernier’s office, who said it wasn't a good look and
didn’t present a unified party if I continued to run, when I decided to pull out.

Daryl Small reported that two Goodna property owners were discriminated against
both with insurance and flood relief.

Jo-Ann Miller MLA reported that most businesses had not been included in flood
relief and that even Suncorp did not cover businesses and Jo-Ann and Milton agreed
that there were many angry business owners.

and that if they went to MAY Employment in Queens Street, Goodna and asked for
the Department-of Community officer, they wouid get help filling out the required
claim forms, They could also phone 3227 7111 and ask for the nearest Community
Recovery Centre.

sending out shoddy builders, and that some had even informed the people that
