Statement on Barnaby Joyce

Federal Member for Wide Bay Llew O’Brien paid tribute to work of former Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Barnaby Joyce:

Barnaby has been a very good Minister for Agriculture and a capable Minister for Infrastructure and Transport.
Barnaby visited Wide Bay a number of times during the last federal election campaign and in his time as Deputy Prime Minister.
He has a strong interest in the Bruce Highway and a keen understanding of the importance of Section D Cooroy to Curra, which I know he has highlighted to his cabinet colleagues.
I have always found Barnaby to be incredibly supportive and to hold a great understanding of what the Wide Bay electorate needs, and I worked closely with him to secure funding for a number of projects.
My focus is and always will be delivering for Wide Bay. Lowering unemployment and stopping the needless deaths on the Bruce Highway are my priorities and I look forward to continuing to work with the party’s new leader in pursuit of those and many other goals.
