From the Editor's desk
Dear valued subscriber,
Last week we gave you an exclusive first look at our Future Ipswich series.
This week we're giving you the first opportunity to secure tickets to our Future Ipswich forum on April 16.
There's never been a more important time to be a part of our city's future.
This week's Federal Budget has highlighted that despite our unprecedented population growth and key role we're playing in the growth of southeast Queensland, we have not been made a priority.
That has to change, and that was certainly the message from top Australia demographer Bernard Salt when he sat down with the QT to talk about Ipswich's future.
You'll be able to hear more about that at our future Ipswich forum where I'll present Bernard's key findings.
You'll also hear from our panel of leaders and advocates;
Ipswich City Council Interim Administrator Greg Chemello
Rail Back on Track transport advocate Robert Dow
Ipswich Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Phillip Bell
And Superintendent District Officer Ipswich Kath Innes
We'll open the floor to questions from you too.
We hope to see you there
Editor, Shannon Newley
