Opposition leader courts the region
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.
