QUEENSLAND Labor has formally endorsed Bronwyn Taha as the Labor candidate for Whitsunday in the forthcoming state election.
Ms Taha, 43, who is among the latest group of Labor candidates announced by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, came within 218 votes of securing victory in Whitsunday at the previous Queensland election.
She said she was honoured to be given the opportunity to again represent Labor on Ms Palaszczuk’s team.
“I’ll be working hard right up until election day to win the support of Whitsunday residents,” she said.
“I’m committed to making sure our region receives the help it desperately needs to get back on its feet after the devastation of Cyclone Debbie.”
A Midge Point resident and Whitsunday local for more than two decades, Ms Taha is heavily involved in the community and is a member of the Proserpine and Midge Point progress associations.
She has spent most of her working life in the hospitality industry, including running her own restaurant, and has gained knowledge of the issues facing regional Queenslanders while travelling the state for the past two years as an ALP organiser.
Ms Palaszczuk said Ms Taha would be a tenacious advocate for Whitsunday residents.
The seat of Whitsunday is currently held by the LNP’s Jason Costigan.
