Candidates race on

Edenhope and District Memorial Hospital chief executive Emma Kealy is the latest candidate to nominate for Nationals pre-selection.

She joins Bruce Petering and Russell McKenzie to publicly announce their nomination for the state seat of Lowan.

Ms Kealy said she had the right amount of skills, experience and passion to represent the Lowan electorate.

She listed improvements to road and rail infrastructure, reducing the burden of red-tape on business, access to technology including mobile phone coverage and decentralisation of government services as key issues.

Ms Kealy added that her experience in rural and regional healthcare, and interest in a strong future for education in the electorate would give her an advantage.

“I have a strong belief in the abilities and resourcefulness of people in the Lowan electorate. We know how to get things done out here, and I respect the sense of resilience and innovation that communities and businesses show,” she said.

“We must have strong local economies and communities to make sure this electorate attracts new investment and new residents.”

Petering nominates

Mr Petering, a prominent regional sporting leader, many-time Wimmera Football League representative and premiership coach, said parliamentary decision-makers needed to recognise the value of rural and regional communities.
