Buxton locals gather to chat with MP
MEMBER for Burnett Stephen Bennett has visited the region again this month to conduct mobile office appointments with residents.
On Friday Mr Bennett received a warm welcome in Buxton where he met with residents to discuss local issue affecting the community.
About 20 locals turned up to hear from their local MP and take advantage of the mobile office visit.
Mr Bennett regularly hosts his 'MP Connect' visits right across the district to ensure he is accessible to residents, particularly those living in regional and remote areas.
"It's vital as your local representative that I'm out and about visiting locals and giving people every opportunity to raise their concerns," Mr Bennett said.
"It's great to see so many locals taking advantage of these visits to ensure they have their say. Their concerns are important and it's equally as important that their voices are heard."
Mr Bennett's next mobile office visit to the region will be on Monday, June 6, with his first stop at the Paragon Theatre in Childers from 10am, followed by a visit to Woodgate's Serenity Cove Café at 12:30pm.
