McRae gets cabinet chance

RIVERTON MLA Tony McRae has filled the cabinet vacancy resulting from the resignation of John D’Orazio. Mr McRae beat former minister Bob Kucera and Swan Hills MLA Jaye Radisich to the plum posting after a caucus ballot which had the factional spectrum split by 27-19. It is the fourth appointment for Premier Alan Carpenter since he was elected in January. Mr McRae won his seat of Riverton in 2001 from Graham Kierath and is believed to have strong ties to the trade unions, in particular the CFMEU and its state president, Kevin Reynolds.
