Mur­ray elec­torate of­fices will re­main open: Pic­coli

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS - ~ Zoe McMaugh

It will be busi­ness as usual at the De­niliquin NSW Mur­ray elec­torate of­fice un­til af­ter the by-elec­tion, re­tir­ing Mem­ber for Mur­ray Adrian Pic­coli has said.

Mr Pic­coli said even af­ter his of­fi­cial last day in Par­lia­ment this Fri­day, Mer­i­lyn Hussey and Ma­ree Flagg would still be avail­able at the of­fice in Cressy St.

Whether the of­fice is re­tained in De­niliquin af­ter the by-elec­tion will be up to the new Mem­ber for Mur­ray, but Mr Pic­coli said it would be un­wise to close it.

‘‘Who­ever wins the elec­tion would be crazy not to keep the De­niliquin of­fice or its staff,’’ Mr Pic­coli said.

‘‘The staff will re­main there to as­sist the com­mu­nity un­til af­ter the by-elec­tion.

‘‘Any peo­ple who have brought mat­ters to me can be as­sured they will still be dealt with.

‘‘We are per­son­ally writing to any­one with out­stand­ing is­sues. ‘‘Ul­ti­mately, it is busi­ness as usual.’’ Mr Pic­coli said it would be the same sit­u­a­tion at his of­fice in Grif­fith.

The De­niliquin of­fice is lo­cated at 228 Cressy St, De­niliquin. Phone 5881 7034 or email mur­ray@par­lia­ment.nsw.gov.au.

Mer­i­lyn Hussey, Adrian Pic­coli, Ma­ree Flagg and Kim Burgess say it’s busi­ness as usual at the De­niliquin NSW Mur­ray elec­torate of­fice.
