This week marks my last week on the road for 2017 having visited the Blackall-Tambo, Barcaldine and Longreach shires dotted along the Matilda Highway. Great country, even better people. While that meant another three days and two nights away, I’m loving staying real and connected to our members even after 25 years of doing it. With such a great team at Local Government House in Brisbane to back me up it’s possible to stay as connected as I am. After all, the LGAQ’s credo is Connect. Innovate. Achieve.
