Dungog Community Centre will run another question and answer session with Paterson MP Bob Baldwin at the James Theatre at 2pm on Sunday 12 October.

Following the success of the first Q & A event, Mr Baldwin will be back to take questions on federal matters and how they impact on the electorate and the shire.

“We were thrilled at the response to our local event regarding the rural vision for the shire and after many requests we now move questions to a wider stage and federal issues,” community centre manager Sarah U’Brien said.

“There are many challenges facing the government, which impact on all of us and Mr Baldwin, as our representative in Canberra, will put them into a Hunter context.”

Up for discussion will be the Budget, the NBN and Telstra, roads, fuel excise and pricing, new university plans, financial assistance grants, pensions, the co-payment, health, the environment. Relevant local issues and topics are very welcome.

“We are also responding to a request for a day time event to accommodate the many parents with young families and to reflect this we are delighted to feature children from Dungog Public School to present the welcome and perform the National anthem,” Ms U’Brien said.

Admission is free but seats are expected to fill quickly so members of the audience are urged to be early.

Dungog Community Centre asks all members of the public to submit questions for consideration by noon on Friday 10 October dins@dins.org.au
