It was an incredibly busy week being back at Parliament for the first time this year – but I was extremely pleased to discuss matters that are so important to our community.
I held meetings with both the AusNet CEO and the Energy Minister to discuss the unacceptable power outages in our region, giving me the opportunity to share hundreds of stories directly from our community.
I have been assured that we will see a clear plan for upgrades to the power supply infrastructure in the coming weeks.
I met with the Agriculture Minister to discuss the need for more flood recovery funding, and discussed regional sporting grants with the Community Sport Minister.
I spoke on a variety of bills, including one calling for stronger building regulations to protect consumers – and another that is set to improve the operation of Service Victoria.
I also raised several questions coming directly from the community – including about road maintenance, biosecurity, child safety, farm break-ins, and transportation.
This is just the start for 2024 – I look forward to continuing representing our region, and your needs, every day.
