The issues Victorians faced before the 2022 state election have not changed.
In fact, it is getting to a critical point for our state’s health crisis, the increasing cost of living and the cost of education.
These are not isolated to a single electorate or region. There are issues that every Victorian – whether they are regional or metropolitan – will encounter.
As the 60th Parliament of Victoria resumes for the year, The Nationals will be ensuring that the voices of regional Victorians are heard.
Regional Victorians have spoken, and they want urgent action on Victoria’s expanding surgical waitlist, overcrowded Emergency Departments, patchwork local roads, mobile blackspots – the list goes on.
But most importantly, regional Victorians don’t want to be overlooked by the Andrews Labor Government when it comes to investment in our communities and services.
The Nationals enter Parliament with a stronger team, covering Victoria from border to border.
We will put the issues facing rural and regional Victorians front and centre, and work to resolve them.
The Nationals is the only party solely representing regional Victorians. It is our absolute focus.
The regions should be more of a focus for Labor, because when the regions are thriving, Victoria is thriving.
