Nahan to seek regional feedback

Tayler NealeAlbany Advertiser

WA Liberal leader Mike Nahan will be in Albany this weekend listening to local concerns as part of a regional policy roadshow.

The roadshow, organised by O’Connor MP Rick Wilson, will allow regional communities an opportunity to provide input into the party’s policies. Mr Wilson said the aim of the roadshow was to identify important issues within regional WA.

“Following the State election in March, the Liberal Party has made a real commitment to getting out into regional areas and re-connecting with communities,” he said.

“I decided to organise this regional roadshow and have invited other senior Liberal members of Parliament to take part.

“Our aim is to talk to as many people as we can and find out what issues are most important to them, particularly for those living in regional WA.”

Mr Wilson encouraged the Albany community to voice their policy ideas at the forum.

“We’re here to listen, it’s a policy clean slate — it’ll be starting from scratch,” he said.

“I thought it was important to get in early and get regional issues front and centre because obviously regional health, education and law and order feed into broader policy issues.”

Member for South West Steve Thomas and Senator Slade Brockman will also be attending the roadshow. “It’s a good opportunity for people to come and meet Senator-elect Slade Brockman and Steve Thomas,” Mr Wilson said.

“It’s also a good opportunity for people to get their point of view in front of those members as they’re settling into their new jobs.”

The forum will be held at the Albany PCYC from 2pm-4pm on Saturday.
