ROYALTIES for Regions has been Jeff Seeney’s main focus since his party gained power in 2012.
This will be his sixth campaign in Callide.
“Being in government means I can deliver the infrastructure projects and government services my electorate needs,” the Deputy Premier said.
He said other than infrastructure, improving health services was at the top of his list.
“We’ve made moves to improve health services by reducing wait times.
“For example I personally knew people who were waiting six years for dental treatment and it’s personally gratifying to have been able to make an improvement where there are no wait times.”
He said delivering a new police station for Murgon, securing $15 million in funding for the Monto-Mt Perry Rd and establishing Royalties for Regions funding were highlights.
“I represent country towns at the top level of the State Government and I understand what country people need from government. We have to fight hard to make sure we get our fair share.”
Mr Seeney has held Callide since 1998 but until 2012 that was under a Labor government.
“In opposition trying to deal with these problems was frustrating, but it has been gratifying being able to fix those problems.”
