Your Nationals WA team has been standing shoulder-to-shoulder with regional communities, sending a clear message that they will not tolerate being neglected.

The Nationals WA leader Mia Davies said she and her colleagues had joined community members over the past 18 months fighting to save the Schools of the Air and camp schools, reinstate funding for agricultural colleges and keep the Moora Residential College open.

“We’ve joined communities campaigning for Community Resource Centres (CRCs), fairer airfares to regional destinations, increasing the value of Country Age Pension Fuel Cards and ensuing important health, aged care and community-driven projects are not shelved,” Ms Davies said.

“And we are standing up for farmers and those in the supply chain whose businesses are impacted by the live sheep export situation.”

Local MP Peter Rundle said the community’s hard work campaigning for services they deserved had paid off, with Schools of the Air and CRCs funding saved, and the federal government stepping in to fund the Moora Residential College.

“As investment into the regions becomes scarce, country residents will be hit hardest,” Mr Rundle said.

“Sadly, regional students, pensioners and families are being undermined by a state Labor government determined to cut services, funding and opportunities from the bush.”

Nationals WA spokesperson for Agriculture and Agricultural Region MP Colin de Grussa said this included showing contempt for the farming community, which works tirelessly to feed the nation and world.

“Our farmers have been ignored by a state Agricultural Minister whose interest lies only with banning live export and decimating the government agency that is supposed to assist industry,” Mr de Grussa said.

Member for the Agricultural Region Martin Aldridge said that The Nationals WA were the only party that stood up for regional WA.

“Only The Nationals will fight for regional WA, and will continue to put issues affecting regional WA front and centre.”

The Nationals WA team looks forward to catching up with you at this year’s Esperance Agricultural Show to discuss the things that are important to your family, business and community.

Only The Nationals will fight for regional WA, and will continue to put issues affecting regional WA front and centre.
