Mr BURGESS — On 10 February I was pleased to join Ann‑Marie Hermans, the local Liberal champion for community needs in Cranbourne and candidate at the next election, to meet Cranbourne residents to talk about the issues they face and how their concerns have been ignored for so long by Labor. Among the many messages of support Ann‑Marie received on the day were offers of assistance for her campaign and in other ways.
On 11 February I was pleased to join Liberal candidate in Frankston Michael Lamb to talk to local residents, listening to their needs and concerns. Frankston needs a fresh start with an MP who is prepared to work with residents to achieve needed outcomes. The feeling from those we spoke to was that they want an MP who understands that he or she is there to represent their views and needs and will fight for those good outcomes, not someone who thinks his job is to always explain what the government has got right.
