Christmas message from Steph
16 December 2016
With Christmas fast approaching and the arrival of 2017 just around the corner, I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone in the Euroa electorate a very merry Christmas, and a happy, safe and prosperous New Year.
The Christmas holiday season is a wonderful opportunity to relax and spend time with family and friends.
It has been an absolute privilege to represent and work for the people of Euroa in 2016. For me it has been a busy and fulfilling second year in politics and I have greatly enjoyed the diversity of the individuals, groups and organisations I have worked with to help make our region a better place.
While opposition can be a frustration at times, with the community’s support we have still been able to achieve some great things across the electorate including an ambulance for Nagambie, funding for Benalla P-12 College, new female facilities for Kings Park in Seymour and funding for a new hospital in Rushworth.
I hope everyone enjoys their time over the Christmas and New Year period, but also remains vigilant and safe on the roads, in our waterways, pools, out in nature and even in the backyard.
I’d like to take this opportunity to encourage everyone to shop locally and to support our local traders and economy during this time as you purchase Christmas gifts and goodies.
The strength and generosity of our rural communities is one of our greatest assets.
Please take the time to look out for others in our community, extend the hand of friendship and offer the spirit of Christmas to those around you.
Again, I wish everyone across the Euroa electorate a merry Christmas, and a very happy New Year.
