Cabinet rolls into town

BUNDABERG residents and communmity groups will have a chance to air their views directly to State Government ministers this weekend as community cabinet rolls into town.

There have been 140 delegations booked in by individuals, community groups and industry.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she was looking forward to visiting the region along with her cabinet colleagues.

"The Member for Bundaberg, Leanne Donaldson, and the Member for Maryborough, Bruce Saunders, have been very vocal in ensuring I make it to their patch and listen to locals," Ms Palaszczuk said.

"I'm looking forward to the Community Forum and listening to what locals have to say, as well as getting out and about in the local area before a special Cabinet meeting in Bundaberg on Monday.

"Bundaberg was the first regional centre I visited after being sworn in as Premier and I look forward to returning."

The Premier's first official engagement was attending the funeral of former mayor and Labor MP Nita Cunningham.

Bundaberg MP Ms Donaldson said community cabinet was a wonderful opportunity for the people of Bundaberg to see and meet with ministers and their departmental staff.

"It is also a great opportunity to showcase how great Bundaberg is and the great potential within our community," she said.
