Trevor named as RDA chair
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.
Bill Trevor is the RDA chair.
