Shayne Kenneth Neumann (born 26 August 1961) is an Australian politician. He is an Australian Labor Party member of the Australian House of Representatives since 2007, representing the Division of Blair. On 25 March 2013, Newman was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Attorney-General and Parliamentary Secretary for Health and Ageing.
Neumann defeated Thompson at his second attempt in 2007. He was aided by two factors. Firstly, a redistribution of the electoral boundaries, finalised in 2006, pushed Blair further into Ipswich, roughly halving Thompson's majority. Secondly, there was a big Labor resurgence across the country at the 2007 federal election under the leadership of Kevin Rudd. This resurgence was at its greatest in Queensland; Rudd's home state.
