LETTER TO THE EDITOR:
IN reply to the suggestion by independent candidates for the seat of Gippsland South that the electorate has been neglected under National Party representation these claims are far from the truth.
The representation we have been fortunate to have both while in and out of government has seen much development throughout our region.
The Nationals are the only party with policies to stand up for rural and regional communities without city-centric influence and have a proven record of doing so.
Danny O’Brien has the credentials to continue the best representation possible for Gippsland South given the size and diversity of our electorate.
While showing his concern for all people and their welfare in health and education, he has an understanding of the importance of sustainable agriculture, small business and tourism enterprises, as well as manufacturing industries, all of which ensure jobs, so essential to our future prosperity.
In short, the sort of positive representation we need.
