Electorate news
Friday, July 1, 2016

It is a privilege for me to represent you in Parliament and as your local MP I am always keen to hear your views and ideas. 

Next week I start the latest round of Coffee Catch Ups in Cafés around the electorate.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for you to come along and talk about various issues that matter to you”, says local MP Louise Upston.

I am expecting that people will have a range of things they want to discuss, whether it is local or national issues, or how Budget 2016 may affect you.  

“It is important that people in rural communities have access to assistance if they are experiencing issues with government departments,” Ms Upston said.
