Bundy, Bay and Bush!
Keith Pitt is the Federal Member for Hinkler. Since he was elected in 2013 he has continued to work hard to deliver for the residents in Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and all the small townships in between.
Keith entered politics to be a strong local voice for regional Australia and his focus is on attracting more investment to the region to help build a stronger regional economy and bring more job opportunities now and into the future.
Mr PITT (Hinkler) (19:40): Would you believe, Mr Deputy Speaker, that recently it was Australia Day? Around
Australia Day our local councils give out awards to citizens, and there were many in both the Fraser Coast
Regional Council area and Bundaberg. There were far too many to name, but I do want to call out a couple of them.
‘Dare Mighty Things’ – the slogan from the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab is a short quote from a Teddy Roosevelt speech: “Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure … than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight”.
