New Nationals branch for Murray-Wellington
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.
