O’Brien listens to Korumburra
“As part of my role as The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, I believe it is crucial that I am accessible to all of my constituents, no matter where in the electorate they live.
“People’s issues often go unheard because they either have mobility issues, are too busy or find it’s too difficult to visit their local MP’s office, so this allows people to raise matters important to them without having to leave their town.
“I am always willing to arrange appointments at locations that best suit constituents, but these mobile offices give me a chance to directly engage in a local setting while supporting local businesses, which are the lifeblood of communities such as Korumburra.”
Mr O’Brien thanked the Kelly family – Jason, Tarli, Gilbert and Lyn – and staff for their fantastic hospitality and allowing him to set up his office in their café.
“We all know that this end of the electorate experiences more wet and cold days than most of the other areas, and there’s nothing better than a Kelly’s Bakery pie to warm the cockles of your heart on such days,” Mr O’Brien said.
Mr O’Brien said he would follow up each of the matters on behalf of his constituents to ensure they get the attention they deserve.
“I’ll be visiting a different town each month, with my August visit pencilled in for Rosedale.”
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South Danny O’Brien discussed water security and issues affecting small business with president of the Korumburra Business Association David Amor at Tuesday’s mobile electorate office at Kelly’s Bakery.
