Locals turn out to meet Danny O’Brien MP
A strong contingent of local residents turned out this week to meet The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, as he took his electorate office on the road.
Mr O’Brien met with residents at the Mt Best Hall, Toora and Welshpool as part of his regular mobile office visits.
A number of local residents congregated at Mt Best to discuss issues including local roads, bushfire safety, climate change and planning rules, while further constituent meetings were held at the Latte Dah Café in Toora and the Rural Transaction Centre in Welshpool.
Mr O’Brien said he was pleased at the turnout.
“Mt Best is a strong little community and people regularly come to meet me when I conduct my advertised visits there.
“I believe it’s critically important that I make myself available to discuss state government issues with my constituents in their communities and it’s pleasing to see people take advantage of the opportunity.
“I have a number of issues now to follow up and I’ll be continuing to work on those matters on behalf of my local constituents.”
While in the district Mr O’Brien also visited Welshpool and District Primary School
“This is a great little school with an excellent community feel and it was pleasing to have the school captains Bree and Sofie show me around with Principal Gabby Boyd.
“I love visiting local schools and hearing what their needs are as well as talking to students about my role and leadership in the community.”
