As the Shadow Minister for Water, Manufacturing and Regional Development I travelled to Townsville this week to meet with Townsville Chamber of Commerce, Townsville Enterprise and Regional Development Australia Townsville and NWQ.
A great opportunity to talk up regional development with businesses and the local community.
Thanks for such a productive visit Townsville!
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the need for the Queensland School Transport Assistance Scheme (STAS) to be comprehensively reviewed to better match the educational and transport needs of Queensland students.
School bus runs are determined by Qld Transport and unfortunately, they do not always meet the transport needs of the students.
I am often advocating for my constituents to get a fair and workable bus route under the School Transport Assistance Scheme (STAS).
There is currently a petition calling on the Qld Labor Government to conduct a statewide review of STAS to create a more flexible scheme that aligns with the expectations of the Department of Education, parents and students.

Does it get any better than Kingaroy peanuts from the The Peanut Van😋
I love to read, and with the cool and wet weather in Kingaroy over Easter I found some time to read Leah Purcell’s book ‘The Drover’s Wife’.
Leah was born and raised in the Nanango Electorate town of Murgon and it was a real pleasure to chat with her when she was recently in town. Grab a copy if you haven't already☺️
