Listening post in Sale Mall
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien set up a listening post in the Sale Mall this week to ‘check in’ with the community about issues concerning them and to hand out shopping bags in the wake of the plastic bag ban.
“With a break in parliamentary sittings and committee hearings I am spending as much time as I can talking to people and hearing what they have to say.
“It’s great to have a quick chat to people as they are going about their day and it’s been a bonus to hand over shopping bags – some people are still getting used to plastic bags not being available at some supermarkets.
Mr O’Brien said many people were keen to sign the two petitions he had with him calling for a halt to the roll out of wire rope barriers until it is done properly and for the Andrews Government to fund the final two stages of the Princes Highway duplication project.
Mr O’Brien also took his office on the road last week to meet with constituents at Nambrok, Rosedale and Gormandale discussing issues including V/Line travel, funding opportunities, wire rope barriers and many more.
“It is always great to get out of the office and meet with people in their areas.
“Sometimes it is difficult for people to come to my office so I am happy to take the office to them.”
