Statement on Redistribution of Electoral Boundaries Shane King MP, Member for Kallangur

Following the release of the Queensland Redistribution Commission’s proposal to redistribute electoral boundaries for future Queensland State Elections, I have been contemplating how best to achieve what I have set out to do in public life.

 

I have consulted with my family as well as the Party organisation and Labor colleagues. I entered politics to safeguard the rights of working people and to facilitate economic recovery for our community following the Newman Government’s tenure.

 

The Palaszczuk Labor Government has achieved much for our local community - since being elected I’ve been pleased to be a part of a Government that’s delivered the Boundary Road upgrade at Narangba, opened a new $4.2 Million dollar fire station in Petrie as well as

supporting local schools including Burpengary Secondary College, Kurwongbah State School and Jinibara State School.

Our work is not done however, and the Liberal National Party continue to pose a threat to our public assets. As an electrician myself, I know that our assets are best kept in public hands.

Having had the weekend to discuss all of these things, I am pleased to announce that I intend to stand at the next State Election as the Labor Candidate for Kurwongbah.

Kurwongbah represents the best chance for me to work as closely as I can with my existing electorate. Importantly, Kurwongbah contains the emerging University site at Petrie which I firmly believe is biggest economic game changer in our region to date.

 

I look forward to representing new constituents in Narangba Valley, Lawnton, Burpengary and Joyner. Further I look forward to assisting the Labor Candidate for Murrumba transition into those areas of my existing electorate that I have sadly lost.

I thank my family, Queensland Labor, the trade union movement and the Premier for their ongoing support.
