Member for Barker Tony Pasin hosted a successful community meeting in Frances last week as part of his continued effort to ensure local voices are heard in Canberra.


The meeting was well attended by local residents on Thursday night who raised a number of issues directly with Mr Pasin as well as hearing from their local Federal Member about what’s happening in Canberra.


Issues discussed included current mobile phone and internet coverage; the poor quality of the local road network; lack of maintenance of the unused railway lands; concerns re access to health services; and the impact on residents severely impacted by current border closures.


Frances is one of a series of community meetings that Mr Pasin is holding around the electorate.


“I try and be as accessible as possible as I travel around the electorate. Due to the COVID pandemic it has not been possible to host a mobile office at farm fairs, field days and shows this year so it is more important than ever to ensure that I’m available as much as possible to speak with my constituents in person.”


“I am most effective in Canberra as a representative for Barker when I have a clear understanding about what is important to my constituents.” said Mr Pasin.
