Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester says he is looking forward to campaigning on behalf of Danny O’Brien in the upcoming Gippsland South by-election.
Mr Chester said he enjoyed a strong working relationship with Mr O’Brien and believed he would be an ideal candidate for The Nationals to continue delivering improved services and infrastructure in the region.
“Under Peter Ryan, The Nationals had a proud record of delivering for the electorate and I’m very confident that Danny O’Brien can continue the good work,” Mr Chester said.
“I’ve known Danny and his wife Vicki for almost 20 years and they are a formidable team with enormous passion for regional families, and the Gippsland community.
“The Nationals have a strong, united team working together for a stronger Gippsland.”
Mr Chester said he expected a tight contest, but remained confident The Nationals would hold the seat.
“I’m looking forward to working in partnership with Danny O’Brien on issues of State and Federal Government responsibility to deliver the best possible result for all communities across our region,” Mr Chester said.
