The Hinkler electorate office is hitting the road

Monday, 10 March 2014

Hinkler residents will have greater access to their Federal Member, with Keith Pitt scheduling regular visits to the electorate’s many communities.     

The Hinkler Electorate Office will hit the road between Parliamentary sitting weeks to meet residents who, for various reasons, find it difficult to travel to Bundaberg.

Mr Pitt will visit Hervey Bay and Childers later this week (March 14). He will visit Howard and Woodgate on Tuesday April 1, Hervey Bay on Monday April 7 and Burrum Heads in May.  Residents can request an appointment with Mr Pitt by telephoning 07 4152 0744 or emailing

Mr Pitt said he was delivering on his promise to represent all Hinkler residents.

“My door is always open, but I want to ensure people in Hervey Bay and Hinkler’s many smaller communities also feel their concerns are being heard,” he said.

“No matter where a person lives, they should have access to the person they elected to be their local voice in Canberra.

“The Coalition is delivering on its promise to be a consultative Government.”

Mr Pitt invited constituents to interact with him on Facebook and YouTube. Residents will also receive the first edition of Mr Pitt’s newsletter, Hinkler Headlines, in coming weeks.

“They can monitor my progress at,” he said.

Matters on which the Hinkler electorate office may be able to assist Hinkler constituents include pensions and family payments, veterans’ affairs, citizenship, passports, Medicare, immigration and taxation.

NOTE: Further visits will be announced as they are scheduled. Residents can express their interest by emailing
