Op­po­si­tion leader courts the re­gion

Geraldton Guardian - - News -

Op­po­si­tion leader Mike Na­han has vis­ited the Mid West in a bid to “win back the trust of Western Aus­tralians”.

The WA Lib­eral leader ar­rived in Mo­rawa for a meet­ing with lo­cal farm­ers on Saturday be­fore head­ing to the Mullewa Agri­cul­tural Show for a lunch with the com­mit­tee and a tour of the event.

His visit to the Mid West wrapped up on Saturday af­ter­noon with a tour of Ger­ald­ton’s Ocean Fresh Fish­er­men’s Wharf.

Mr Na­han said the visit was part of a tour to all re­gions in WA.

“We have heard loud and clear since the elec­tion that we need to lis­ten to and com­mu­ni­cate more ef­fec­tively with the com­mu­nity and that’s what I’m seek­ing to do,” he said.

“We are work­ing hard to re­con­nect and re­build our lines of com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

“My fo­cus, since be­com­ing Op­po­si­tion leader, has been to reen­gage with the Western Aus­tralian com­mu­nity, and these lis­ten­ing tours are im­por­tant in hear­ing from lo­cals about their con­cerns, the is­sues fac­ing them and their fam­i­lies and their ideas on how to im­prove the way we do things.”

The Op­po­si­tion leader also vis­ited the Wheat­belt last Fri­day.

Shadow agri­cul­ture and food min­is­ter and Mem­ber for Ger­ald­ton Ian Blayney and shadow re­gional de­vel­op­ment min­is­ter Jim Chown ac­com­pa­nied him on the tour.
