Pasin secures Shadow role

Federal Member for Barker Tony Pasin has been appointed as the Shadow Assistant Minister for Infrastructure and Transport by the Leader of the Opposition, Peter Dutton.

Mr Pasin said he was “humbled” to be appointed and he was particularly conscious about ensuring the newly elected government continued to invest in the rural, regional and remote infrastructure task.

“As someone who drives over 100,000km a year mostly on rural roads and who, as a local member, represents local industries who rely heavily on the efficient movement of goods to market, I understand how important this portfolio is for Australians and our national economy,” he said.

“The Coalition came to government in 2013 committing to build the roads of the 21st century and over the ensuing eight and a half years invested record sums into infrastructure projects right across the nation helping to drive economic growth and prosperity.”

Mr Pasin said the challenge for the newly elected government was to maintain that momentum.

“I look forward to working closely with Senator Bridget McKenzie, Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development to ensure the government is held to account and delivers the pipeline of infrastructure projects bequeath to them by the Coalition,” he said.
