The Hunter Business Chamber has welcomed the reappointment of a Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced today that Taylor Martin MLC will take up the role.
Chamber CEO Bob Hawes said it was important for the region to be represented in the NSW Government’s ministry team. The Chamber wrote to the Premier in December requesting the reinstatement of the then-vacant role.
“The Hunter region has enjoyed the representation of a dedicated Minister or Parliamentary Secretary for approximately 30 years and the role has been an important conduit to government and advocate on regional issues,” Mr Hawes said.
“The Chamber places high value on the role and believes both government and the region have benefited from the assistance these representatives have been able to provide.
“The Chamber already has a good working relationship with Mr Martin and we welcome his appointment as Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter.”
