New Faces In Local State Parliamentarians

Saturday’s Queensland State Election result, with the LNP sweeping the Bligh Labor Government from power, will bring several new faces to local representation.

John McVeigh
Trevor Watts
Deb Frecklington

After having survived four previous elections in the marginal seat of Toowoomba North, Kerry Shine will be replaced by the LNP candidate, Trevor Watts.

The Independent seat of  Nanango was won for the LNP by Deb Frecklington in her first foray into politics, and former Toowoomba Regional Councillor, John McVeigh, replaces Mike Horan (who announced his retirement prior to the election being called) in the blue ribbon LNP seat of Toowoomba South.

Sitting LNP members, Ray Hopper in Condamine and Lawrence Springborg in Southern Downs, were returned with sizeable majorities.
