Labor’s Hume candidate Michael Pilbrow is letting us know he’s been to see Prime Minister Gillard, for some reason to give the lame duck a petition on duplicating the Barton Highway:
Mr Pilbrow said the meeting was a significant step in the campaign to have the highway duplicated.
“I applaud the Mayor of Yass, Rowena Abbey, for initiating the petition and thank the other mayors
and community members who have got behind the campaign so strongly,” he said.
“The fact that the Prime Minister was able to meet the mayors and receive the petition means the issue is now squarely before the Federal Government.
Or maybe she’s just happy to see some friendly faces?
