Benalla Ensign - - Front Page -

Be­nalla res­i­dents will have the op­por­tu­nity to put ques­tions and ideas to Mem­ber for Euroa Steph Ryan to­day dur­ing an on­line, elec­torate-wide fo­rum.

Ms Ryan, who holds reg­u­lar lis­ten­ing posts in com­mu­ni­ties through­out the elec­torate, said the fo­rum was a way for res­i­dents who were un­able to meet dur­ing busi­ness hours to have their say.

‘‘It’s al­ways dif­fi­cult for peo­ple who are work­ing or busy with young chil­dren to get to a drop in ses­sion in per­son,’’ Ms Ryan said.

‘‘So this is a way to make sure ev­ery­one has an op­por­tu­nity to share their ideas and views.

‘‘I am al­ways seek­ing feed­back from the elec­torate on the is­sues that mat­ter to our com­mu­ni­ties.

‘‘Peo­ple raise ques­tions about ev­ery­thing from the pro­vi­sion of pub­lic trans­port, ed­u­ca­tion and health­care to con­cerns about crime and La­bor’s treat­ment of the CFA with me on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

‘‘Res­i­dents may also wish to seek de­tail on some of our re­cent elec­tion com­mit­ments, put (for­ward) their views on par­tic­u­lar is­sues or ask me for in­for­ma­tion on the top­ics that mat­ter to them.

‘‘I look for­ward to speak­ing with res­i­dents... about how we can get a bet­ter deal for the Euroa elec­torate.’’

The fo­rum will take place to­day be­tween 5.30 pm and 7 pm. Peo­ple liv­ing in the Euroa elec­torate can take part by fol­low­ing the link on Ms Ryan’s web­site,
