O’Brien on the road along the 90 Mile Beach
The provision of health services, local infrastructure, jobs, the CarbonNet project, environmental and foreshore issues were on the agenda when The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien took his office on the road this week.
Mr O’Brien undertook advertised visits for meetings with constituents in Loch Sport, Golden Beach, Seaspray, Giffard West and Stradbroke as part of his regular series of mobile electorate office visits.
“As is usually the case, I had a full book of appointments in all locations and it was great to get out and listen to the concerns of my constituents. I certainly believe it’s important that I am available to local people in their own communities which is why I take my office on the road regularly.
“I had over 15 appointments at the various locations, meeting dozens of people on issues of concern to them. I also visited the Loch Sport Bowls Club and Loch Sport Men’s Shed to discuss funding applications for improvements to their facilities.
“I’ll be following up a number of concerns including health services in Loch Sport, local planning issues, community engagement from the CarbonNet project and many others as a result of this visit.
“It’s always great to get out and listen to people on the ground, not only does it help me represent my constituents better, but it also helps The Nationals as we develop policy to ensure that we are addressing the issues that are important to regional Victorians.”
