McGowan welcomes move by Senator McKenzie
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.”
