Former Nationals WA member Terry “Tuck” Waldron has been appointed chairman at RDA Wheatbelt.

Mr Waldron has advocated strongly for rural communities, in the belief that families in the bush should have the same access to quality facilities, services and opportunities.

“My interests in the region align with the new RDA charter and I am keen to strengthen economic development and investment within the Wheatbelt,” he said.

Outgoing Chairman Mr Graham Cooper OAM had served on the committee for eight years, four as deputy chair and another four as chairman.

Mr Waldron urged rural residents to consider a volunteer RDA committee position.

“(It is) a rewarding way to give back to your community and to grow the Wheatbelt,” he said.

“I am honoured and delighted to be offered the opportunity to steer RDA Wheatbelt forward.

“My interests in the region align with the new RDA charter and I am keen to strengthen economic development and investment within the Wheatbelt.”

Mr Waldron brings a range of experience to the Committee as the Nationals Member of the WA Legislative Assembly from 2001 to 2017.

He previously worked in the rural real estate industry, sports administration and development, and farming.
