Palmer candidates share a coffee and thoughts for the future

PALMER United Party candidates Matt Adamson and Steve Janes had a latte or two at Toast Espresso this week, mingling with constituents.

Former NRL star Mr Adamson will run for Senate and Mr Janes is hoping to score the Federal seat for Page.

Both took the opportunity to tell The Daily Examiner their plans for the region, if elected, with a focus on small business.

"We're dealing with macro-economic issues here; in all the towns, there are empty shops and businesses are closing down," Mr Janes said.

"We need to reduce the burdens on small business."

Mr Janes said he was confident he would do well come election day.

"People are so disillusioned at the moment and a lot of people have had enough (of how it stands now), so I think I'll do reasonably well," he said.
