KEVIN ANDERSON APPOINTED AS PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY
Tamworth community champion Kevin Anderson will take on a new role as the Parliamentary Secretary for the Deputy Premier Troy Grant and for Regional Roads and Rail.
The appointment was made in Parliament today following the resignation from the role by Member for Orange Andrew Gee who has chosen to focus on his campaign for the federal seat of Calare.
“Kevin is an outstanding local member who over the past five years has advocated and delivered for the people of Tamworth, and I’m confident he will excel in his new role.” Mr Grant said.
“Regional rail has been added to the Parliament Secretary role as the rollout of a new regional rail fleet is a key focus of the government this term.
“Mr Anderson will work with me and with Minister for Transport Andrew Constance to deliver this and many other great improvements to regional transport that the NSW Liberals and Nationals Government is committed to delivering.”
Mr Anderson said the new role is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the great work of the NSW Government to deliver the services people in regional NSW need.
“I look forward to working with the Deputy Premier, Minister for Roads Duncan Gay and Minister for Transport Andrew Constance to ensure the community’s voice is heard and the projects we’ve promised are delivered,” Mr Anderson said.
“While this greater responsibility is an exciting new challenge for me to work with regional communities across the state, my electorate of Tamworth will remain my first priority and they will have a greater voice through this new role.”
