State Member for Redlands Matt McEachan has been appointed Shadow Assistant Minister to the Leader of the Opposition, Tim Nicholls MP.

The announcement was made this morning at a joint media conference to announce the new Shadow Cabinet, under Opposition Leader Tim Nicholls and Deputy Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington.

Mr McEachan said he was honoured to be asked to serve in the new Shadow Cabinet.

“I look forward to working with Tim Nicholls, Deb Frecklington and the rest of my Shadow Cabinet colleagues to deliver for Redlands,” Mr McEachan said.

“I will continue to promote the needs of the Redlands, in particular the urgent upgrade of Cleveland Redland Bay Road.

“One of my first priorities will be to invite the new Shadow Minister for Transport and Main Roads Andrew Powell to visit Cleveland Redland Bay Road to show him what we are dealing with every day in the Redlands.”

“Again, I am honoured and proud to be a part of the LNP Opposition Team.”
