Although the Liberal Government, like so many of their promises (not forgetting the Flinders Street Station plan) failed to do anything more than announce a plan.

Welcome

Geoff Howard

As the Member for the Buninyong Electorate, I am your local government representative and you can contact me if you have any queries or concerns about State Government issues that affect you in Buninyong.

 

Over the coming months I intend to continue my practice of meeting with as many people as possible across the communities in the new electorate.

 

As well as holding my regular community consultations, I will be door-knocking and making phone contact with residents.

 

I will also be holding local community meetings and BBQ’s across the many suburbs, towns and regions in the electorate.

 

If I miss you while I am out and about, or you are not able to attend my community meetings in your area and would like to speak with me, please call 5331 7722 or e-mail me on geoff.howard@parliament.vic.gov.au

 

I would also welcome any support you may like to offer towards my efforts to provide strong leadership to represent your community.

National Volunteer Week

May 24, 2018

To mark National Volunteer Week I would like to take this opportunity to recognise the important work of volunteers across the communities within the Ballarat region. It is a highlight of my role to interact on an almost daily basis with volunteers contributing in so many ways to the wellbeing of others.

Electoral Legislation Amendment Bill 2018

May 24, 2018

What the bill aims to do is make some sensible changes, as we have heard, recommended by the Electoral Matters Committee in regard to the extension of early voting procedures. We have certainly seen in recent elections that early voting has extended in terms of the number of people who wish to take advantage of early voting, and it seems to have been a very sensible process to provide that opportunity for people who cannot be present on election days. What we have done on this occasion is recognise that a lot of people have been coming to pre-polling to vote ahead of the election day.
