Campbell’s coming and he’s bringing his Cabinet

IF YOU want to talk to Campbell Newman face to face, here is your chance.

The Premier is bringing Queensland Cabinet to the Keppel Electorate next month and he wants to hear from Central Queenslanders across a broad range of issues.

The Premier and his ministerial team are keen to listen to any concerns residents may have or projects they'd like to see developed in the area.

"I encourage residents, organisations and business all to take part in these meetings which will help shape this great region and the industries which are so important to it," he said.

The Keppel Community Cabinet will be held at the Frenchville State School in North Rockhampton on Sunday, September 14.

Issues could include the bikie gang laws and impact on tattoo parlours while projects might involve Rockhampton's proposed stadium/ convention centre, a wow factor development on Yeppoon's foreshore and Dominic Doblo's vision for a giant hydroelectric dam on the Fitzroy River.

"Central Queensland plays such a vital role in Queensland's economy," Mr Newman said.

"Our government promised we would grow a four pillar economy focusing on agriculture, resources, tourism and construction and this region is rich in all of these."

Member for Keppel Bruce Young welcomed the news that the focus would be on the region. "I urge local residents to contact my office in order to organise meetings with government ministers," Mr Young said.

"This is a great opportunity for locals to secure direct meetings with key government officials."

This will be the sixteenth Community Cabinet held around Queensland by the State Government.
