Colin Boyce was today sworn in as the Federal Member for Flynn for the 47th Parliament of Australia.
Mr Boyce is only the 17th Queensland representative that has been elected to all three levels of government.
Mr Boyce said he was honoured to be sworn in as the Federal Member for Flynn.
“It is an incredible privilege to represent the rural and industrial electorate of Flynn and the almost 110,000 voters who call it home,” Mr Boyce said.
“I am committed to taking Flynn forward and holding the Labor Government to account on the promises that were made for Central Queensland.”
Mr Boyce has had an extensive career before being elected as the Federal Member for Flynn and believes this will be an asset in serving his community.
“I was the State Member for Callide from 2017 – 2022,” Mr Boyce said.
“Before entering state politics in 2017, I was an active partner in our family cattle and farming enterprise, and our small engineering and earthmoving businesses.
“I was a Councillor on the former Taroom Shire Council, before the State Labor Government amalgamated local councils.
“As a qualified boilermaker I worked for several years in the gas industry as a high-pressure pipe welder, particularly the QGC pipeline to Curtis Island.
“Since leaving school I have worked throughout Queensland as a ringer, timber cutter, plant operator/earthmoving contractor.”
Mr Boyce will deliver his maiden speech this Thursday and outline his vision for Flynn.
“I pledge my loyalty to the people of Flynn and earnestly thank them for putting their trust in me. I will be their champion and I will most ardently defend their future and prosperity,” Mr Boyce said.
