Ruth Bonnett

Ruth Bonnett is the Queensland Party candidate for Brisbane Central in the next Queensland election. She has a long history of involvement in public affairs and has been associated with:

  • Brisbane Association for Rates Equity (we fought a long campaign against the then Lord Mayor Campbell Newman’s massive rates hike for unit owners, and saved unit owners $9.6 Million in their rates after the Lord Mayor adjusted the “Parity” formula. I have since resigned as Secretary to pursue a political career.
  • Unit Owners Association of Qld – lobbying the State Government on issues of interest to unit owners such as limited Management Rights Agreements, Class 2/3 enforcement, sustainable costs for unit owners, etc. I still volunteer from time to time after serving as Executive Officer for six months during transition of the board.
  • Property Rights Australia: I have participated in rallies in Canberra which culminated in the Senate Enquiry into Native Vegetation Control Legislation and Greenhouse Gas Abatement; an enquiry which could be useful to impacting our Queensland legislation on Vegetation control. I have attended two AGMs to become familiar with issues in rural Queensland
  • Brisbane Residents United: Loose association with this group which is a voice for those Brisbane residents who want more say in development in their suburbs
  • Secretary of a large body corporate: Actively involved in flood recovery, and committed to protecting the rights and interests of unit owners.
