Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

CATHY McGowan (MHR, Indi) has wel­comed Vic­to­rian Se­na­tor Brid­get McKen­zie’s plans to re­lo­cate her elec­torate of­fice from Bendigo to Wodonga by the end of this year.

The Wan­garatta Chron­i­cle last week con­firmed the Na­tion­als deputy leader is mak­ing the move, and has not ruled out con­test­ing the seat of Indi at next year’s fed­eral elec­tion.

“Hav­ing the Min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for re­gional ser­vices, lo­cal govern­ment and de­cen­tral­i­sa­tion in Indi will be of great ben­e­fit as we work through fi­nal­is­ing the Al­bury-Wodonga deal an­nounced in Al­bury last month by the Prime Min­is­ter,” Ms McGowan said.

“One of the things we love in Indi is a good elec­tion... hav­ing qual­ity can­di­dates to for a fierce bat­tle around ideas and pol­icy is wel­come.”
