FRASER Coast State Members Anne Maddern and Ted Sorensen have been officially confirmed by the LNP as candidates for the 2015 election.

Member for Maryborough Electorate Mrs Maddern and Member for Hervey Bay Mr Sorensen were endorsed by LNP state president Bruce McIver on Friday morning.

Mr McIver said Mrs Maddern and Mr Sorensen were doing a good job representing the interests of the region

"Both are passionate locals with a track record of strong commitment to their communities," he said.

Speaking to the Chronicle, Mrs Maddern said she had delivered for the electorate and planned to continue should she be re-elected. 

"If the Maryborough electorate again gives me the opportunity to represent them at State Government level, I am determined to continue to grow services, the economy and jobs with the goal of having our community recognised as the best place in Queensland to live, work and play," she said.
