Llew O’Brien welcomes Building Better Regions
WIDE Bay LNP candidate Llew O’Brien says his party is committed to providing better opportunities for people living in regional Australia.
“The new Building Better Regions Fund will focus on communities like ours and will generate new activities, encourage new investment, and grow our economy, Mr O’Brien said in response to news the national Stronger Regions Fund would be restructured to stop money being pumped from it into capital city projects.
“If elected, I will strongly support community driven projects that benefit our region to apply for funding from the Coalition’s Building Better Regions Fund. This could very well include the Mary Valley Rattler but will depend on the priorities of the Gympie Regional Council.
“The Building Better Regions Fund, combined with the Wide Bay Burnett Jobs Package, demonstrates the Coalition’s strong commitment to building better, more productive and more prosperous communities in Wide Bay.
“In contrast, Labor has abandoned Wide Bay, offering nothing to improve local communities.”
