Na­tion­als, Lib­er­als no bet­ter

Euroa Gazette - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I READ with in­ter­est your ar­ti­cle on the North East train ser­vice and noted that lo­cal mem­ber Steph Ryan (MLA, Euroa) was highly crit­i­cal of the per­for­mance of the trains and the ef­forts of the cur­rent gov­ern­ment. Crit­i­cism is easy and cheap. How­ever, I am yet to see from our lo­cal mem­ber a clear and com­pre­hen­sive plan of what a Na­tional/Lib­eral Gov­ern­ment would do to im­prove our train, com­plete with con­crete prom­ises that it would ac­tu­ally be done.

At least the An­drews gov­ern­ment is do­ing some­thing.

It ap­pears that all our lo­cal mem­ber can of­fer is what the pre­vi­ous Na­tional/Lib­eral gov­ern­ment did for our train and that is ab­so­lutely noth­ing. around to say ‘ Hi’.

Then his shop closed and he moved be­hind the hedge.

If was not un­til the train track work, that I caught up with him for a chat.

We had time as we waited for the train to go to Mel­bourne at Seymour sta­tion.

He would tell me sto­ries about how he trav­elled the world ski­ing and the peo­ple he had met.

I asked him if he was a mem­ber of the Eruoa ski club, but I got dis­tracted by trains com­ing and never found out.

That was one death no­tice I did not see was his old ski club.

For any­one who needed some­thing in Euroa, we have a jimmy story.

He should not be for­got­ten in our town his­tory. I am go­ing to miss him as I miss Coral.

Good bye Jimmy.
