Bizarre to hear Daniel Andrews say about the Greens: ‘no deal will be offered & no deal will be done’ but his booth workers in Gippsland consistently hand out Labor and Greens how to vote cards as a pair. He’s a complete phoney. @DannyOBrienMP @TimBullMP @MelinaBathMP #vicvotes

‘I don’t want people to hate because hate has started all of this’ says Bourke St terror attack survivor Rod Patterson. Well said Rod, and well done for running to assist at the scene. A brave Australian. https://t.co/DzeNHch1qo

We’re a bit hopeful in #lovegippsland that this might provide more than a passing shower this evening. Is there much more to come? @JaneBunn Very dry east of Rosedale and north of Yarram... all the way to NSW border. https://t.co/fsuITLTZrO DarrenChesterMP photo

Sheridan Bond and I dropped into the Morwell Croquet Club to chat with George and Sue about plans for a much-needed upgrade.
Even managed to get a quick lesson in… but we both definitely need a few more! The club is looking for $100,000 to upgrade its current facilities, which are significantly outdated.
I’m supporting the clubs plans for an expansion as part of the $5 million investment underway at the Morwell Recreation Reserve.

Christmas has come early...
Fantastic morning in Cowwarr to announce $267,000 in funding towards a major upgrade of the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail.
With around 3000 people using the trail each month this funding will help to encourage a healthy, active lifestyle while creating jobs and supporting local businesses.
The rail trail committee needs a total of $1 million for several improvement projects. These include a new bridge over the Thomson River; upgrading the Eaglehawk Creek crossing; and sealing the trail from the Princes Highway to Glengarry.
I will be working with local and state government to secure the extra money required.
Well done to Helen Hoppner and the committee for their ongoing efforts - lobbying all sectors of government over many years to make this project happen.

Well done to everyone involved.
