‘Decade runway’: Ted O’Brien’s key role to steer the 2032 Games
Queensland MP Ted O’Brien says he’s delighted to be taking on a new role as federal government’s top official to help steer the 2032 Brisbane Olympics.
He’ll take on the job of special envoy after playing a key role in securing the rights for Brisbane as the Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s personal representative.
“There is no doubt that cooperation between the three tiers of government is a pre-requisite for success, candidly I don’t think the Queensland public will cop any breakout where one tier of government decides to do the dirty on the other.”
He said there was a “decade runway” to the Games and said it was important not to politicise it, with all levels of government to unite “to get the job done”.
