Nationals Member for Euroa Annabelle Cleeland is reaching out to the Redesdale community, calling on their help to bring attention to ongoing road maintenance and telecommunications issues in the region.
Ms Cleeland was in Redesdale for a “Cleeland Cuppa” at the start of August, helping members of the community complete their $250 Power Saving Bonus.
“One of the big issues brought up was improving the quality and reliability of telecommunications in the area,” Ms Cleeland said.
“I have been meeting with Telstra as we work through some of the telecommunications challenges ahead of the bushfire season.
“We must ensure that the community remains safe and is able to reliably contact friends, family, and emergency services if necessary.
“As these conversations continue, I would love to hear more from you about your local experiences with phone and internet connection as I work to resolve this.”
Ms Cleeland said issues with the quality of the roads, and the dwindling road maintenance budget, were also one of the community’s biggest concerns.
“I want to bring attention to some of our region’s worst roads,” Ms Cleeland said.
“Sadly, road maintenance and the road resurfacing budget have all but been abandoned under this Labor Government.
“If you are aware of roads that are unsafe, filled with serious potholes, or just poorly maintained, please get in contact with me so that I can raise this issue in Parliament.”
