Statement on Damian Drum

Dept of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications

It is with great sadness that we see the conclusion of the Federal Member for Nicholls’ parliamentary career as he announces his retirement.

Damian, or as he’s known by his colleagues, “Drummy”, has had an extensive career at both state and federal level.

He holds his seat by a margin of 20 per cent, demonstrating how respected he is by his constituents.

A champion football player who became a champion politician.

Drummy is very much a team player. He revels in being the Whip, but does have a tendency for mission creep to any other role he believes he is suitably qualified.

He is very well liked by his colleagues and beyond being a Whip, he also moonlights as a National Party corner store operator.

After a long career, it is sad but makes sense that he wants to spend more time with his wife and family.

Good luck, Drummy.
