Shadow ministers visit Lismore

FOUR State Opposition spokespeople will descend on Lismore this evening to get community feedback on their social policies.

 Lismore MP Thomas George, who is hosting the event at Goonellabah Workers Sports Club, said it was a chance for the community to have input into the policies the Coalition takes to the next state election in 2011.

“The public consultation meeting in Lismore is an opportunity for local residents to provide feedback and input on how to best achieve our social policy goals and principles,” Mr George said.

In attendance will be health spokeswoman Jillian Skinner; women and community services spokeswoman, Pru Goward; emergency services spokesman Melinda Pavey; and spokesperson for community safety, Steve Cansdell.

“The NSW Liberals and Nationals have released a set of principles and goals to build a smarter, stronger, healthier and safer community,” Mr George said.

“These principles and goals will provide a roadmap of how we intend to implement social policy in government.

“Good policy is not developed behind closed doors. It is developed in close consultation with the community, business sector and stakeholders.” People keen to attend, should contact Mr George’s office.
