New Na­tion­als branch for Mur­ray-Welling­ton

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

THE WA Na­tion­als Party last week cel­e­brated the cre­ation of a new branch in Mur­ray-Welling­ton and wasted no time in throw­ing its sup­port be­hind the re­cently recom­mis­sioned Brunswick Cheese Fac­tory.

The party cel­e­brated the for­ma­tion of the new branch on Mon­day last week, af­ter vot­ing in an ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee, and unan­i­mously elected 2017 Mur­ray-Welling­ton can­di­date Paul Gil­lett as branch pres­i­dent.

Speak­ing at the launch event, Mr Gil­lett said he was hon­oured to be part of a ded­i­cated team of lo­cal mem­bers who have formed the new branch.

“With­out a party ded­i­cated solely to de­liv­er­ing bet­ter health, in­fra­struc­ture, ed­u­ca­tion and com­mu­nity out­comes in re­gional WA, the peo­ple who live out­side the metro area will al­ways miss out,” Mr Gil­lett said.

He also said the new branch would cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for res­i­dents to have their voices heard at a State and Fed­eral level.

South West MLC Colin Holt at­trib­uted the groundswell of sup­port for the Na­tional Party to res­i­dents feel­ing that Mur­ray-- Welling­ton was miss­ing out on fund­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and peo­ple’s dis­sat­is­fac­tion with other par­ties.

Later in the week Mr Holt joined new branch pres­i­dent Mr Gil­lett in Brunswick to spruik the ben­e­fits that could come from the $10 mil­lion in­vest­ment in the Brunswick Cheese Fac­tory by Brownes par­ent com­pany Shang­hai Ground Food Tech.
