Murrumba welcomes new MP – Dr Steven Miles


Locally, there has been a reshuffle of MP’s and electoral boundaries, resulting in our local electorate of Murrumba being appointed a new MP.

Steven Miles MP, who’s seat of Mt Cootha disappeared under the boundary redistribution and who is Queensland Labor Minister for Environment and Heritage Protection and Minister for National Parks and the Great Barrier Reef, has taken on the seat of Murrumba.

Last Friday 3rd March, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and local MP’s, along with members of the public, attended a ribbon cutting ceremony to open the new Kallangur campaign office of Steven Miles MP for Murrumba.annastacia-palaszcuk-opening-kallangur-office-steven-miles

Dr Miles grew up in in the area, having attended Petrie State School and St Paul’s at Bald Hills. His website Steven Miles MP states that he is committed to tackling unemployment through job creation, listening to and acting upon the concerns of Queenslanders, and restoring integrity and accountability to government in Queensland.

Steven has supported the current increased funding for koala conservation and protecting wildlife and with his ministerial roles, is well positioned to give a voice to local issues in the electorate of Murrumba.

Murrumba now comprises parts of Rothwell, most of Mango Hill, Griffin, Murrumba Downs, Kallangur and Dakabin.

Under the changes, the seat of Kallangur, represented by MP Shane King is set to become Kurwongbah and includes the suburbs of Petrie, Kurwongbah, Joyner, Whiteside, Narangba, parts of Burpengary and parts of Lawnton.

Incumbent Murrumba MP Chris Whiting will contest the newly created electorate of Bancroft which includes suburbs – North Lakes, Deception Bay and Burpengary East.

The latest redistribution increases the total number of Queensland seats from 89 to 93, dropping the average number of voters per electorate from approximately 34,200, to around 32,700.

The increase in seats was passed through parliament in April last year and included in the bill is a change in the voting rules from Optional Preferential Voting to Mandatory Preferential Voting, meaning that under the current rules, voters are required to number every box in order of preference, for their vote to count.
