Candidate drops by
LABOR candidate Chris Buckingham took to the streets of Leongatha last Tuesday, February 16 to hear the concerns of local voters.
The candidate for McMillan travelled around the region throughout the day in his new red caravan, visiting Mirboo North, Leongatha and Korumburra to speak with residents.
“Business owners, workers on their lunch break, pensioners and parents have all stopped to speak with us. We have been listening to their concerns and what they believe are major concerns in South Gippsland,” Mr Buckingham said.
“Education and public transport have been concerns which have come up a lot. People want better access to communication.
“Labor’s policies would ensure all students from all schools would benefit from Gonski. It is one of our highest priorities and we believe it resonates with a lot of people’s concerns in the area.
“We will be running more of these drop in sessions in the future. It is all about us being live and local and being present with the people of McMillan.”
