The Cowper MP is looking forward to returning to gov- ernment and using all the connections he has accumulated since 2001 to stimulate the local economy.
"I've already spoken to Joe Hockey about building on the Centrelink Call Centre expansion to bring another government office to the city," Mr Hartsuyker said.
"I'm keen on something like the Tax Office being established and creating around 300 skilled government jobs here.
"There would be savings to the government and huge benefits to the region."
Mr Hartsuyker returns to Canberra tomorrow ahead of a party meeting on Friday.
After two terms in opposition he is champing at the bit, even if starting a fifth term in Parliament carries with it some unwelcome baggage.
Among the Nationals' likely 15 members, only Warren Truss and Bruce Scott have been there longer than Mr Hartsuyker and John Cobb.
"I don't know how I feel about moving into the group of older members. It's a bit unsettling," he laughed.
Given that until Saturday Mr Hartsuyker was the shadow spokesman on regional communications, youth and sport as well as being the deputy leader of opposition business in the House of Representatives he must be considered a strong chance for a ministry in the Abbott Government.
"I'm happy to serve in whatever capacity Warren Truss wants me to. Who will be in the ministry will be sorted out in the next few days," he said.
What is apparent is that Mr Hartsuyker seems more determined than ever.
"The time in opposition was not wasted. It lets you think about what you want to do and what the priorities of your communities are. I'm ready to go," he said.
High on his to-do list are working on completing the Pacific Hwy duplication, re-wiring the NBN rollout and moving Cowper forward.
"We've allocated $5.6 billion to finish the highway duplication by 2020. That massive amount of money will also us to let bigger contracts so hopefully there will be some savings in cost and time.
"With regards to the NBN we won't be throwing the baby out with the bathwater. We will honour all existing contracts but with new contracts will come the new fibre-to-node technology.
"It will be just as fast as the vast majority of people need, it will be cheaper and we will get it done quicker. Everyone will have access to the NBN by 2016."
Locally Mr Hartsuyker said he was looking forward to helping the Jetty Foreshores makeover come to fruition.
"The makeover is absolutely essential," the Cowper MP said.
"People's expectations are so much higher these days and so we need to bring this fantastic part of our city into the 21st century, not just for the tourism sector but as a community amenity for locals."
Mr Hartsuyker admits there will be challenges ahead, but he said he is enthused about what lies ahead.
"Here in Coffs all three levels of government, Andrew Fraser, the Mayor Denise Knight and I have a good working relationship and now that all of the North Coast electorates are held by the Nationals we will have strength of representation that will serve our area well," he said.
"It is a great honour to be elected to Parliament and especially to be re-elected for a fifth time.
"I'm excited about what lies ahead. I think everyone will see a new style of government.
"Tony Abbott will have a much more measured cautious and methodical approach."
