Matters of public importance

I am certainly pleased to speak and follow on from the member for South-West Coast, who sadly wanted to talk down her electorate and what is happening in regional Victoria. When I heard her talking about the roads I thought, 'It is hard to believe how roads can deteriorate in just 18 months since this government came to office'. I suspect that the former member for South-West Coast ā€” the former Premier ā€” is very much responsible for clearly not addressing the roads in his own electorate during the four sad years of the former coalition government.

I have been delighted to visit several towns in Golden Plains shire this past week following the completion of a number of great community facility upgrades.

Phoenix P-12 Community College

August 17, 2016

The Premier also visited Phoenix Pā€“12 Community College on that day to be shown plans for the next stage of building works soon to get underway following a funding allocation from the first Andrews government budget. Again they were delighted by this announcement.

Canadian Regional Park

August 17, 2016

Friday, 5 August, marked another great day for my electorate. On that day the Premier came to Ballarat to formally open the Canadian Regional Park, securing this 641-hectare park for future generations of Ballarat residents.
