Member for Barwon Roy Butler hosted a catch-up with Narrabri region residents last week.

Attendees spoke to the local MP about several issues, including teacher and nurse shortages.

People had the opportunity to discuss different challenges they’re facing with Mr Butler, in particular about access to health treatments and services for children with special needs.

“Holding these catch-up nights provides constituents with direct access to me to raise their concerns,” Mr Butler told The Courier.

“With the Barwon electorate being so large, it is a good way to meet with people in my communities and gain an understanding of the issues that concern them.”

Farmer Allan Campbell attended the gathering to chat with Mr Butler about agricultural issues and to ask questions about the primary producer registration of farm trucks.

“It’s good that he took the time to listen and take in the information,” said Mr Campbell.

“His office has been very good and helpful to me this year too.”
