O'Brien's office gets mobile
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, was out and about in the electorate last week with mobile office visits to Kongwak, Korumburra and Arawata.
Mr O’Brien said the mobile office visits give constituents a chance to raise State Government issues face-to-face with their elected representative without the hassle of traveling to his Sale or Leongatha offices.
“I met with around 30 constituents on Wednesday who raised issues as diverse as coal seam gas, weed control, the Hazelwood closure, renewable energy, youth activities and crime to name a few.
“In 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.”
Mr O’Brien thanked the Kongwak Community Hall Committee, Kelly’s Bakery in Korumburra and the Arawata Community Hall Association for their hospitality and allowing him to set up his office in their venues.
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien, met with Noelene Cosson, President of the Korumburra Business Association, during a Mobile Office visit in Korumburra last week and listened to members of the Arawata community under the shade of a tree outside the hall.
