A new electorate office for Colac

I am very pleased to announce that I will be opening a new office in Colac.

The second electorate office will be located in Murray St, in the heart of Colac’s business district.

For the first time, new parliamentary regulations mean that members of parliament who represent an electorate of at least 5,000 square kilometres in size will be eligible to open a second office.

I plan to open the office three days a week from Wednesday to Friday.

The office will provide constituents from Colac and district and across the Colac Otway region with greater access to federal services and assistance. It will also be a wonderful way for me to stay in touch with the issues which matter in the western part of the Corangamite electorate.

I am also delighted to be joining the Colac business community as a “trader” on Murray Street.

I have always been extremely proud to represent Colac. The Turnbull government has delivered very substantial investments for the Colac Otway region including the duplication of the Princes Highway, the upgrade of the Great Ocean Road, many mobile base stations and major funding support for Central Reserve and Colac’s CBD.

In contrast to Labor which has turned its back on Colac, I believe the Colac Otway region is an integral part of the Corangamite electorate.

The new office will open early next year. I encourage local residents to drop in, say hello and let me know the issues which are important to you and your family.
