Local politicians take on the big issues in new roles

MACKAY, Whitsunday and Burdekin MPs have been handed key new roles tackling the region’s big issues in a shake up of Cabinet and shadow cabinet.

Mackay MP Julieanne Gilbert – who previously held the Assistant Minister for Treasury role – is now Assistant Minister for Health and Regional Health Infrastructure in the new-look Cabinet.

Newly elected Whitsunday MP Amanda Camm was handed a portfolio as part of LNP leader David Crisafulli’s refreshed shadow cabinet.

Ms Camm will serve as Opposition spokeswoman for Child Protection, the Prevention of Domestic, Family and Sexual Violence.

“Many know this is very close to my heart and I will undertake this responsibility with hardwork, empathy and passion – as an advocate for those voices that cannot be heard; to make positive impact and effect change,” Ms Camm said.
