McCORMACK SAYS THANKS FOR TRUSTING HIM TO CONTINUE TO DELIVER FOR THE RIVERINA AND CENTRAL WEST
RIVERINA Nationals’ MP Michael McCormack has recommitted to being a strong voice for the Riverina and Central West in Canberra after his re-election earlier this month.
Mr McCormack attended the Declaration of the Poll in Wagga Wagga on Thursday 30 May. It comes after he was sworn in as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development in Canberra on Wednesday.
Mr McCormack said he was energised and focused on continuing to deliver for the Riverina and Central West.
“My passion is serving the region in which I live,” Mr McCormack said.
“I am proud to have delivered on many important projects across the Riverina and Central West including the multipurpose stadium at Equex Centre and the new PCYC facility in Wagga Wagga, main street upgrades for Cowra, Forbes, Gundagai and Parkes and $1 million in drought assistance each for Bland, Coolamon, Cowra, Forbes, Parkes and Weddin Local Government Areas.
“One of the most important initiatives being delivered is the Murray-Darling Rural Medical Schools Network, which will include a dedicated medical school in Wagga Wagga and one in Orange – both of which will service the north and south of the electorate.
“But I know there is more work to do and I am delighted to be given the opportunity to continue to fight for our fair share.”
Mr McCormack said The Nationals would continue to advocate for people in rural and regional Australia.
“I am privileged and humbled to be able to be the voice in Canberra for all of you throughout the Riverina and Central West,” Mr McCormack said.
“I am also honoured to be the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development.
“This enables me to be around the Cabinet table when decisions are being made which really affect regional communities.”
