IN POWER: Member for Callide Jeff Seeney is sworn into Parliament
IN POWER: Member for Callide Jeff Seeney is sworn into Parliament

AFTER 14 years in opposition, LNP member for Callide, Jeff Seeney has not only been elected into power but is now deputy premier.

"I am gratified by support we received with not only the seat of Callide but the whole party," Mr Seeney said.

"Now we have a strong government with a strong mandate."

Mr Seeney said his top priorities would be focusing on the Nathan Dam, improving the Burnett Highway and regional health services.

He said these issues would be a lot easier to address now that the LNP was in government.

"Being in opposition is like trying to steer a bus from the back.

"But now we have the wheel again."

He has also assured residents representing and recognising regional towns were still important issues.

"I will continue to live in Monto and spend one day a week in my Biloela office.

"I feel it is important to stay in touch with the towns.

"I think it is important for the people at home to know even though now I am the deputy premier I am still the local member."
