We need to stand up to Labor


NO doubt there will be all sorts of promises by the candidates in the Gippsland South by-election, but it’s important to remember there will not be a change of government after March 14.

We will do well to choose a candidate who has the strength to stand up to the Labor government and deliver a fair share to our region.

Undoubtedly the contest will come down to a choice between the Nationals’ Danny O’Brien and the Liberals’ Scott Rossetti.

Given the Labor Party is in government and regards Liberals as their arch enemy, I can’t see any point why the Gippsland South voters would vote Liberal and have our region abandoned.

At least the Nationals have a proven record on issues and worked with whoever the government is to get results.
