Honour to represent

Mr Chester said, "Seriously, it's an enormous honour to be chosen to represent the federal parliament at the United Nations at such a critical time in international affairs. Representing the federal parliament in New York for a short period will certainly improve my understanding of international issues and the United States political process during the midterm elections."

Mr Chester said he would continue in his work as Member for Gippsland during the weeks he is based in New York. "Obviously, I won't be able to personally attend the usual community events and functions but I will be in daily contact with my office staff and continue to assist locals with the full range of federal government services that we provide," he said.

"There's a number of Lakes Entrance projects that I am pursuing across all levels of government and I will be continuing that advocacy work remotely for about 10 weeks. I am fortunate to have very experienced local staff who are helping Gippslanders every day with a range of federal government matters." Mr Chester said.
