Emergency Services Minister Ms Jo-Ann Miller Resigns
Our emergency services minister has resigned from the position.
I wish to acknowledge the work done by Jo-Ann Miller as our Minister.
I was fortunate enough to present a number of issues to her since taking office. I found her very receptive and understanding of our issues. She was very much a supporter of firefighters and communications officers.
I wish the Minister all the best in her future endeavours.
I look forward to working with whomever is appointed as the new emergency services minister and to continuing the open and positive relationship we have with the current state government.
I have attached a copy of minister Miller’s resignation statement to the Queensland parliament:
MINISTER FOR POLICE, FIRE AND EMERGENCY SERVICES AND MINISTER FOR CORRECTIVE SERVICES
Mrs JR MILLER (Bundamba—ALP) (9.31 am): Today I wish to inform the House that I have tendered my resignation from the Queensland cabinet to the Premier. It has been an honour to serve as the Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Services and Minister for Corrective Services. I have enjoyed working with all of my commissioners, with the directors-general and with officers and staff right across my portfolio. It has also been a privilege to stand shoulder to shoulder with them, supporting them as they do what they do best in our community: keeping Queenslanders safe. I wish them all the best in their future endeavours, and I want each and every one of our emergency services personnel to know that my spirit will always be with them.
JOHN OLIVER - STATE SECRETARY
