    Palaszczuk Government Cabinet coming to Brisbane Northern Suburbs

    People living on Brisbane’s northside will have their chance to meet with Government Ministers after Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the Government’s sixth Community Cabinet.

    Ms Palaszczuk said the Pine Rivers and Kallangur Community Cabinet would be a chance for local residents to raise issues and ideas that were important to them directly with Ministers and Directors-General.

    “It’s been a hallmark of my Government that we are ready to listen to Queenslanders,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

    “Whether it be questions about education, health, public transport or other Government services, my Government is ready to listen.

    “Both Shane King and Nikki Boyd have been pushing for this Community Cabinet because they know how valuable it is for people in their local area to raise issues and ideas directly.”

    Mr King, the Member for Kallangur, said locals would have a chance to discuss a range of issues.

    “Whether it be the University of the Sunshine Coast’s partnership with Moreton Bay Regional Council or the Moreton Bay Rail Link, there are many changes in our community that will impact on us for a very long time,” he said.

    Member for Pine Rivers Nikki Boyd welcomed the opportunity to host all Ministers.

    “This is a terrific chance for people in our local area to raise questions about housing, schools and other services,” she said.

    The Northern Suburbs Community Cabinet will be held on March 6 at Dakabin High School.
