SHOOTERS, Fishers and Farmers Party candidate Brenden May spoke about electricity prices and Oberon’s roads when he visited the town recently.
Mr May was invited to speak to the Oberon Anti Amalgamation Committee and its partners when they held a reunion Christmas get-together at the Big Trout Motel Restaurant.
Committee member Marj Armstrong said the reunion was held to celebrate the win over forced amalgamations and the upcoming festive season.
Mr May will be the candidate for the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers at the NSW election in March.
“Brenden is a farmer, growing potatoes in the Forest Reefs area of Bathurst,” Mrs Armstrong said.
“He has a family and is well aware of how hard people on the land have had it during the drought. His down-to-earth attitude is a welcome bonus when deciding on whom to vote for in the next state election.
“Brenden was like a breath of fresh air, speaking with the group on the party’s plans and his willingness to represent Oberon.
“He spoke of the policies Shooters, Fishers and Farmers believe in. His warmth and friendliness were very welcomed by the group and he was more than willing to answer the many questions raised.
“Brenden spoke on his thoughts on electricity and its cost problems, the issues Oberon has with roads and the forestry, along with many other issues.
“Brenden will be coming to Oberon as often as he can and will shortly be doing a walk through the street speaking with business owners and community people.”
The NSW election will be held on March 23. Paul Toole is the Nationals candidate and the Labor candidate for Bathurst is Beau Riley.
