Goulburn MP Wendy Tuckerman will take her seat in the State's Cabinet.
Ms Tuckerman will replace Shelley Hancock as minister for local government.
She is one of nine new ministers in the new cabinet to be announced on Monday.
It's a meteoric rise for the MP who was elected in 2019 following Pru Goward's retirement.
However the promotion taps into Ms Tuckerman's local government experience. She was elected to Boorowa Council in 2004 and served as Mayor from 2007 to 2016.
She was appointed administrator of the amalgamated Hilltops Council in 2016 and served up until March this year.
In a statement, Ms Tuckerman said she was "honoured and humbled" by the appointment and looked forward to working with councils and stakeholders across the state.
"Local government plays such an important role in communities and I look forward to continuing the great work that former Minister Shelley Hancock has achieved," she said.
"As Minister for Local Government my focus will be to not only support the delivery of services but also the improvement of the essential functions which (councils) provide. I look forward to working with the Premier, and of course, continuing to represent the Goulburn electorate."
Ms Hancock announced on the weekend that she would not be re-contesting the next election.
Ms Tuckerman is one of three new Liberal women to be promoted to the cabinet.
More to come.
