New assistant minister for roads, transport and infrastructure

Newly named Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister, Andrew Gee, has announced he is determined to bridge the divide between the cities and the bush.

In a statement released late last week Gee, the Federal Member for Calare said he was dedicated to ensuring country communities get their fair share of funding for roads, transport, education and communications.

“I want to use my experience in delivering these and my passion for regional Australia across the nation,” said Gee.

Nationals Leader and Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack who appointed Gee to the new role said he would be valuable asset in the infrastructure portfolio.

“Andrew has a passion for and dedication to his electorate and for country people which is infectious,” said McCormack.

“He fights to make sure families can afford to pay their bills and our strong economy is put to good use building capacity and productivity in the regions,” he said.

Before coming to represent Calare in Canberra, Gee was a parliamentary secretary to the Deputy Premier and for Regional Roads in the NSW Liberal and Nationals’ Government.

“The Central West is seeing the benefit of investment through decentralisation of the Regional Investment Corporation and many local roads and bridges being made safer around the region,” said Gee.

“I want to use my experience in delivering these and my passion for regional Australia across the nation,” he said.

“By investing in the services and infrastructure, we help get people home sooner and safer and make the regions a more attractive place for families and businesses to live, work and invest.

Gee will be sworn in as Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister later this month.
