Support rural tourism
Support rural councils
Rural Councils Victoria Chair Cr Mary-Ann Brown said:
“We are asking all rural Victorians to tell their MPs and federal candidates what is important to them, their families and their communities.”
“We also want rural Victorians to tell their candidates that it is vital that rural Victoria gets its fair share of government investment.”
“We need investment to ensure that our roads are safe, that there is jobs growth, proper digital connectivity, support for emergency services, quality aged care and support for tourism and local councils.”
“Rural Victorians are resilient, but like all other Victorians our communities need their fair share so that those who visit or live in rural Victoria have the services they need and deserve.”
