Russel Northe MLA:
Separate Roadmap Needed for Regional Victoria

Letter to the editor on a separate roadmap needed for regional Victoria.

By Portal Admin - 8th November 2020 - Back to News

Dear Editor,

Daniel Andrews has betrayed regional Victoria by chaining our future to Melbourne.

The regional 14-day average has dropped to 0 but the lives and livelihoods of country people continue to be gutted by the Premiers arrogant focus on the city.

According to the current roadmap, our future still depends on no new cases across the whole state including in Melbourne for 14 days.

I share the frustration and anger of all regional Victorians who have been patient, weve followed the rules and endured the devastating social and economic battering even in communities that have never had a case of COVID in nine months.

Weve done the right thing to save lives, as shutdowns isolated us from friends and family, forced hundreds of thousands of people out of work and closed small businesses that were turning a healthy profit just months before.

We are desperate for change. To be unshackled from Melbourne and for our own roadmap to recovery.

The Andrews Labor Government is paralysed by its poor contact tracing which it still cant get right after nine months.

While Labors failing the basics, its failing Victorians.

At a time when we should be on-track for a safe move to COVID normal, Daniel Andrews is only offering more job losses, more closed businesses and more pain for each and every Victorian.
