Shepparton voters can have a one one-on-one chat with Federal Member for Murray Damian Drum at a Listening Post at the Shepparton Marketplace today.
Mr Drum said Shepparton people could ask questions and have issues clarified following the federal budget this month.
‘‘There is sometimes uncertainty as to what the budget means for the average Australian,’’ Mr Drum said.
‘‘By getting into our communities, I aim to clarify the issues raised.’’
He said today was in the middle of a parliamentary sitting fortnight, which meant he could talk about the parliamentary process and take suggestions back to the parliament on Monday.
Mr Drum will be in the Shepparton Marketplace from 12.30pm onwards and invited everyone to come and say hello.
“It’s important that the community has access to their federal parliamentary representative,’’ he said.
‘‘I am encouraging people to come along to the Listening Post have a chat or just say g’day.’’
