On Friday 14 December, the Narromine campaign office of independent candidate, Mathew Dickerson, was officially opened. Local Elder Ruth Carney performed the Welcome to Country before Deputy Mayor of Narromine Shire Council, Councillor Dawn Collins, officially opened the Narromine Campaign office. In attendance also were former Mayors of Narromine Shire Council, Bill McAnally and Bob Barnett and current Mayor, Craig Davies.
This is the third campaign office for Mathew Dickerson with offices already opened in Wellington and Dubbo.
The opening of the Narromine office aligns with Mr Dickerson’s strategy of ensuring that he reaches across the entire electorate.
Elder Ruth Carney said, “Early on in the campaign, Mathew met with myself and a group of representatives of the Historical Museum. He listened intently to the group and followed up on several issues raised during the meeting. Having a representative who will listen and act for us is incredibly important. I was honoured to perform a Welcome to Country at Mathew’s opening.”
On 22 May when Mr Dickerson made his announcement, he made a commitment to visit all localities across the electorate and to be the voice of the entire electorate. Having multiple campaign offices in the electorate means he is better placed to deliver on that commitment.
