ROC Assembly meets ahead of election

Friday 8 February 2018

The LGAQ also conducted its annual Assembly of the State’s Regional Organisation of Councils this week. It was a top notch gathering, attracting the likes of Federal Local Government Minister and  deputy Nationals leader Bridget McKenzie, Opposition local government spokesman Stephen Jones, State Local Government Minister Stirling Hinchliffe and Australian Local Government Association President David O’Loughlin.

The highlight was a frank assessment by Senator McKenzie and Mr Jones of the likelihood of an incoming government , Coalition or Labor , supporting our bid for a restoration of financial assistance grants to the equivalent of 1 percent of total Commonwealth taxation. Suffice to say that we need to redouble our efforts to convince Canberra of the community’s need for this funding.

See the video below for some highlights from the event.
