O’Brien’s mobile office visits Mirboo North
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South Danny O’Brien held his first mobile electorate office this week in Mirboo North giving constituents a chance to raise State Government issues face-to-face with their elected representative.
Mr O’Brien said constituents he met with on Monday raised issues as diverse as coal seam gas, disability funding, men’s sheds, planning, renewable energy, environment, the Lyrebird Forest Walk, the Mirboo North Pool and human services.
“The mobile office in Mirboo North gave local community members a chance to raise issues with me in their town, without having to travel,” Mr O’Brien said.
“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.
“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, as I did at Dalliance Chocolaterie earlier this week.”
Mr O’Brien thanked Dalliance’s Narelle and Elliyah Salinger for their fantastic hospitality and allowing him to set up his office in their café.
“Mirboo North is the gateway to the southern towns in my electorate, and I often stop in for a coffee at Dalliance on my way through,” Mr O’Brien said.
“The store’s chocolates are divine and are the perfect accompaniment for a coffee or hot chocolate during South Gippsland’s cooler months.”
Mr O’Brien’s next mobile electorate office event will visit Foster on Tuesday, 2 June.
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South Danny O'Brien discussed Men's Sheds with Lindsay Oates during Mr O'Brien's mobile electorate office at Dalliance Chocolaterie on Monday.
