I find it amazing, when election time is on, city-based politicians visit the country for publicity.
It is worth mentioning the Australian Conservatives MLC Robert Brokenshire lives in the country as a dairy farmer, and is almost continually visiting country regions and helping with matters important to locals.
In fact, he travels about 50,000 to 60,000 kilometres per year doing that. He also quite often advertises in this paper that he is available for anyone who requires his help.
Might I suggest readers have a good look at Narungga Matters, which was an insert in this paper, and they will get some idea of what he and Dennis Hood work for in this state and particularly the country areas.
