Trevor named as RDA chair

Isis Town and Country - - News -

FOR­MER Isis Shire mayor Bill Trevor OAM has added another feather to his cap.

Mr Trevor was for­mally an­nounced as chair of the Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Aus­tralia-Wide Bay Bur­nett yes­ter­day, with Her­vey Bay’s Daniel Poacher his deputy.

The po­si­tion is not for­eign to Mr Trevor, given his decade-plus in­volve­ment with the Area Con­sul­ta­tive Com­mit­tee, of which he was chair for 14 years.

“We had our first meet­ing last week in Mary­bor­ough and we will put in place a com­mit­tee,” Mr Trevor said.

Mem­ber for Hin­kler Keith Pitt applauded the news, and said he would work very closely with the com­mit­tee.

“Tourism may be the main thing here but there are a va­ri­ety of projects I’m pas­sion­ate about here,” Mr Pitt said.

“I’m very pleased with the selections for the whole dis­trict and I look for­ward to work­ing with them.”

Deputy Prime Min­is­ter and Min­is­ter for In­fra­struc­ture and Re­gional De­vel­op­ment War­ren Truss said the three-year ap­point­ments would pro­vide lead­er­ship to RDA com­mit­tees to drive eco­nomic growth.
