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.

But that is not a reason for allowing things to remain the same.

We cannot accept the unacceptable.
We have to work to a higher standard of personal responsibility than other places.
A new funding opportunity to support the work of volunteers in the community has opened for Expressions of Interest.
