Former State Agriculture Minister to run in Toowoomba South

LNP members in the federal electorate of Groom have selected John McVeigh as the party’s candidate for the seat at the coming election.

LNP President Gary Spence congratulated Mr McVeigh on his endorsement.

“John has been a committed and strong representative for the people of Toowoomba South in the Queensland Parliament and will be just as effective representing the residents of Groom in Canberra,” Mr Spence said.

“His experience and talent will ensure that the people of the Darling Downs have strong voice in the Turnbull Government fighting for their interests.”

Mr McVeigh said he is humbled to be given the opportunity to stand as the LNP candidate for Groom.

“I’ve been honoured to serve the people of Toowoomba South and as Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Minister in the former LNP Government,” Mr McVeigh said.

“I will use my experience to ensure Groom builds on the strong representation and results achieved by Ian Macfarlane.

“Once a federal election date is confirmed, I will also confirm the timing of my resignation as the Member for Toowoomba South.

“Until then, my focus will remain on providing the strongest possible representation for the people of my community in the face of a state Labor Government that is neglecting regional Queensland.

“The Coalition Government has a strong track record of achievements in border protection, free trade agreements and cutting red tape to name a few and is now focused on developing an economic plan to ensure Australia’s future prosperity.

“I am looking forward to the opportunity to speak with, and listen to, the people of Groom about my plans for this great region in the lead up to the next federal election.”


About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understand the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head this year.
