Today we welcomed Senator the Hon Fiona Nash MP to the Western Downs on one of her first stops into the new term. With David Littleproud MP alongside Mayor McVeigh and Cr Smith, it was a great opportunity to discuss ways in which Council and the Federal Government can work together into the future. ~ WDRC Comms Team
