LNP Traeger candidate Marnie Smith has made a last minute plea for votes having travelled over 8000 km throughout the electorate.
The Forsayth-born candidate able to catch up with old friends and to meet new ones and said she felt the electorate was feeling neglected.
"They want someone who is prepared to stand alongside them in their battle for a fair go," Ms Smith said.
"Agforce, for example, highlighted a number of issues that needed urgent attention, particularly the amount of red tape surrounding the vegetation laws. I have put my reputation on the line by guaranteeing my support for our hard-working farmers and graziers."
Other issues she said needed fixing were the second-rate facilities at the Charters Towers and Cloncurry hospitals.
"There is also a desperate need for extra allied health services including CT scanning and dialysis facilities while Richmond has been gunning for a 24-hour manned ambulance service. Mayor John Wharton has been complaining to the State Government for over 10 years but nobody seems to be listening."
Ms Smith said a young Karumba mum told her her Grade 2 daughter had 17 different teachers in three years.
"This instability does nothing for the future prospects of the kids living in Traeger," she said.
"If elected, I will work to encourage educators and other essential service providers to make a real commitment to the region.
"These people are my people. It would be an honour to represent them and to bring real change to the neglected electorate."
