Kealy gets back to work for Lowan

The Nationals re-elected Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy is calling on newly sworn in Labor Government Ministers to back key local projects that featured during the State Election campaign.

Ms Kealy said that while she congratulated Labor on its win, Daniel Andrews and his team now needed to make good on their commitment to “deliver for all Victorians”.

“The fact that local people voted strongly for The Nationals, in contrast to the state-wide swing, was a resounding endorsement of the commitments we made throughout the election campaign,” Ms Kealy said.

“I’m now calling on the relevant Ministers to deliver on these important projects for Lowan.

“This includes returning passenger rail to the region, ensuring our fair share of roads funding to fix country roads and save country lives, finishing the Warracknabeal Education Precinct and many other fantastic projects around the electorate to ensure our region is not just surviving, but thriving.

Ms Kealy said Lowan voters strongly endorsed these projects and she would not allow them to be ignored by the government.

“I acknowledge the Labor Government’s decisive win however the strong support for Nationals MPs shows that Labor’s message was not endorsed by rural Victorians.

“To ensure Daniel Andrews keeps faith with his commitment to govern for all Victorians, he should be giving attention to the projects that the people of Lowan emphatically voted for.

“I am determined to hold the Labor Government to account to deliver on the important needs of Lowan and ensure that our voice is heard by the State Government.”
