One on one with Gladys
As the NSW Coalition Government heads back to parliament this week it is more important than ever that the NSW Nationals bring a strong voice back to Sydney to fight for the issues which are vital to Regional NSW.
Over summer I have travelled across the state to visit MPs in their electorates to hear more about what we need to do to improve services and deliver infrastructure in our regional communities.
We have achieved a lot but the job is far from over and we are determined to meet the expectations of all our communities in Regional NSW.
Our immediate priority as parliament returns will be to take action on council amalgamations.
We will fight to overturn all pending council mergers in Regional NSW, those which are locked in legal action.
The NSW Nationals are the only party with our roots in the regions and the only party which is able to deliver the funding Regional NSW deserves to fix roads and rail, upgrade local hospitals and invest in local businesses and community clubs.
The NSW Nationals have made great strides, spending over $90 million in government funding to fix country roads, and over $200 million on new health, education and tourism projects in mining impacted regions since 2012.
We have spent more than $205 million on water security projects in Orange, Molong and Forbes and in Bourke, Brewarrina and Boggabri.
There is energy for action in Regional NSW and the NSW Nationals has plenty of work to do.
The economic achievements of the NSW Coalition Government are driving an infrastructure boom across the state and it’s time Regional NSW received its fair share.
It is our turn!
