IT has only been five months since the Campbell Newman-led LNP juggernaut swept aside an unpopular, long-standing Labor State Government.

Claiming 78 of the 89 seats up for grabs on March 24, Premier Newman has taken full advantage of his mandate, rushing headlong into the task of stabilising Queensland's balance sheet and trying to make inroads into the state's $65 billion debt.

His term so far has been dogged with controversy, almost from the start, as his razor gang got to work, axing the $250,000 Premier's Literary Awards after only 10 days in office.

Since then, other programs have been halted, but the biggest headlines have been reserved for the proposed 10 per cent cut to the number of state public servants ... 20,000 jobs will go at last count.

Is he on the right track? Is this the tough medicine we need to swallow, or has he gone too far?

And what of the consequences for regional Queensland? Do you think the regions will be better off in the long run, or will vital services be affected?

We want to air the views of regional Queensland and take your opinions to the powerbrokers in George St, and Premier Newman in particular.

Fill out our special survey and let the LNP Government know your views. Is Campbell Newman's reasoning making sense to you, or has he just lost the plot?
