Jeff Seeney

Isis Town and Country - - News -

ROY­AL­TIES for Re­gions has been Jeff Seeney’s main fo­cus since his party gained power in 2012.

This will be Mr Seeney’s sixth cam­paign in the seat of Cal­lide and the Deputy Premier says he is in a po­si­tion to de­liver.

“Be­ing in gov­ern­ment means I can de­liver the in­fra­struc­ture projects and gov­ern­ment ser­vices my elec­torate needs,” he said.

Aside from in­fra­struc­ture, im­prov­ing health ser­vices was at the top of his list.

“We’ve made moves to im­prove health ser­vices by re­duc­ing wait times.

He said de­liv­er­ing a new po­lice sta­tion for Mur­gon, se­cur­ing $15 mil­lion in fund­ing for the Monto-Mt Perry Rd and es­tab­lish­ing the Roy­al­ties for Re­gions fund­ing were high­lights of his time in of­fice.

“I rep­re­sent coun­try towns at the top level of the State Gov­ern­ment and I un­der­stand what coun­try peo­ple need from gov­ern­ment,” he said.

“We have to fight hard to make sure we get our fair share.”

Mr Seeney has held the seat of Cal­lide since 1998 but un­til 2012 was serv­ing with a La­bor gov­ern­ment.

“In Op­po­si­tion, try­ing to deal with th­ese prob­lems was frus­trat­ing, but it has been grat­i­fy­ing be­ing able to fix those prob­lems.”
