Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester will set up a mobile office at the East Gippsland Field Days to listen to local community concerns.
Mr Chester will attend the Field Days and will also have staff on hand to assist with Federal Government matters.
“I welcome everyone to call into the tent at the East Gippsland Field Days – whether it is to raise an issue with their Federal MP, or just to say hello,” Mr Chester said.
“Our office can help with things like aged care, Centrelink, telecommunications, Medicare and immigration and citizenship.
“It will also be an opportunity for people from our local agricultural communities to raise issues important to them – whether it is foreign ownership, financial support, water security or infrastructure investment.”
Anyone who can’t get to the Field Days can still contact Mr Chester on 1300 131 785 (toll free).
Held on May 1 and 2, the East Gippsland Field Days is one of the biggest events on the local events calendar, attracting up to 10,000 visitors each year.
CAPTION: The Nationals Member for Gippsland Darren Chester will be keen to hear from local primary producers at the East Gippsland Field Days this Friday and Saturday.
