Following the retirement of long-serving MP, Jeff Seeney, the Liberal National Party has preselected local grazier and businessman, Colin Boyce to contest the next state election for Callide.
“I’ve got real life, hands-on work and business experience to show that I don’t just make decisions, I can make good decisions,” the Taroom district grazier said.
“I’ve worked hard and made the most of the opportunities that I have had and want to make sure that our region has a strong and effective voice at the table when decisions are being made.”
As a cattle producer and farmer, My Boyce and his wife Terri know the importance of protecting their family’s assets and income.
Mr Boyce said he will stand up to “the greenies” and Labor Party to protect our regions rural communities.
He has lived in the Taroom district all his life, and he and Ms Boyce have worked hard to acquire their own property, first leasing in the early 90s and buying their first farm in 2002.
Mr Boyce has served on the Taroom Shire Council and has always been a willing helper for the local community, volunteering his labour and equipment.
At the age of 41, Mr Boyce became a qualified boiler maker and in addition to running his cattle and farming interests he has a growing engineering business.
He is a heavy plate welding specialist who builds and repairs implements for earthmoving machinery and farm equipment.
The Boyce’s three adult children have been heavily involved in managing and running the family business for several years.
