In Moore with Love - October 2018

2018 has been a fantastic growing season across the entire electorate of Moore and I very much hope that that this will be a season with bumper yields. It is great to see so many tourists out and about exploring our region and contributing to local economies. I commend those involved with organizing events such as the Midwest Show & Shine and Denison Foreshore Sprint, Taste of Chittering, the Wildflower Festival of Running at Cervantes and Jurien Bay and Blues for the Bush east of Perenjori - all a fantastic means of showcasing our region to others.

Rundle Encourages Community to Have Their Say on Jetty

31 August 2018

Member for Roe Peter Rundle MLA encourages Esperance residents to have their say on the draft concept designs recently released by the Shire of Esperance for a replacement jetty.

The draft concept designs are for a 400m jetty that incorporates a timber historic section, a cement fishing jetty, a widened jetty head and a lowered diving deck.

Mr Rundle said the Esperance community weren’t satisfied with the previous concept designs, and had made their opinions heard.

“It was obvious that the previous concept design did not meet the community’s expectations, and they expected the Shire to go back to the drawing board,” Mr Rundle said.

WA Nats Welcome Royal Commission but Want Terms of Reference Expanded

The Nationals WA have called for the Royal Commission into aged care be expanded to investigate the critical shortage of age-appropriate housing and care providers in regional Western Australia.

Spokesperson for seniors and ageing Peter Rundle congratulated the Prime Minister for calling the Royal Commission, saying poor aged care outcomes were consistently raised with Nationals MPs when they travelled across the State.

Mr Rundle has written to both Mr Morrison and Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care Ken Wyatt to request the terms of reference be expanded.

“The current model of aged care in regional WA is not suitable and The Nationals would like the scope of the Royal Commission widened to investigate this,” he said.

Mr Rundle said work undertaken by his Nationals colleague Terry Redman, the former Minister for Regional Development, in commissioning the Ageing in the Bush Report in 2016, had found alarming gaps in aged care.

Mr de Grussa said he and his Nationals colleagues had been meeting with emergency services groups across the State over the last several months.

de Grussa: Community Must Have Their Say

17 September 2018

Member for the Agricultural Region Hon Colin de Grussa encourages the Esperance community to make sure they have their say on the replacement jetty designs before the 21 September 2018 cut off.

The Shire of Esperance recently released draft concept designs for a 400m jetty that incorporates a timber historic section, a cement fishing jetty, a widened jetty head and a lowered diving deck. The designs were developed by experienced heritage architect firm H+H Architects. 

Mr de Grussa said that the community had expressed concerns with previous concept designs, and congratulated the community on being active to ensure a good design outcome. 

“I believe that the concept design being proposed by H+H Architecture is a good design, which recognises the important heritage aspects of our beloved tanker jetty while creating a functional new jetty that will be iconic in its own right,” Mr de Grussa said.

de Grussa: Minister Needs to Move From Obsession to Understanding

The Nationals WA have called for the Minister for Agriculture to focus on the real issues facing the industry, instead of pedalling her left-leaning agenda.  

At the Dowerin Machinery Field Days this week the Minister for Agriculture announced the Department for Primary Industries and Regional Development would be conducting research at the Wongan Hills Research Station into regenerative agriculture.

Regenerative agriculture is an approach to food and farming systems that rejects pesticides and artificial fertilizers.

The Nationals WA Spokesperson for Agriculture Hon Colin de Grussa MLC slammed the decision, saying it was time for the Minister to move on from her obsession with unproven farming practices.
