You’re not for­got­ten

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - Ken O’ Dowd FEDER AL MEM­BER FOR F LYNN

As the re­cov­ery be­gins af­ter the past weeks flood­ing events, I want to as­sure the peo­ple of the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett re­gion that I am ab­so­lutely com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing you re­ceive any Fed­eral sup­port you may re­quire in this time of need. I would like to high­light that the Com­mon­wealth Government has re­cently ac­ti­vated as­sis­tance un­der the Aus­tralian Government Dis­as­ter Re­cov­ery Pay­ments (AGDRP) for res­i­dents in parts of the Flynn elec­torate, and I will be push­ing to en­sure that ar­eas in the Bur­nett and other af­fected re­gions are in­cluded in this scheme. I would like to com­mend the ex­tremely valu­able and amaz­ing ef­forts of our emer­gency ser­vices and vol­un­teers, as well as the many un­sung heroes who have put their shoul­der to the wheel in this time of need. I will be tour­ing the re­gion in the coming days so please feel free to con­tact my of­fice if I can be of any as­sis­tance.
