With the Federal Election fast approaching, community independent candidate for the electorate of Groom Suzie Holt has been busy visiting towns throughout our region and recently stopped via Pittsworth to chat to residents.
On Saturday, Ms Holt and members of her campaign team visited Pittsworth to discuss local issues, including water, health, aged care and the Inland Rail.
Ms Holt also spent some time visiting local gardening guru, Penny McKinlay, at her nursery.
Reflecting on her time in the town, Ms Holt said trips to Pittsworth are a highlight for her.
"We always have a great time in Pittsworth," she said. "It is such a beautiful area, and people are keen to share their hopes and concerns for the future".
Suzie Holt has now made multiple visits to Oakey, Highfields, Westbrook, Goombungee and Pittsworth, both as founder of Voices of Groom and now as a candidate for the seat of Groom.
She said she believes engaging with the community face-to-face is essential to accurately and effectively represent the electorate in Parliament.
"People want their Federal Member of Parliament to truly represent the community", Ms Holt said.
"The key to that is getting out in the community and listening to what people have to say."
A resident of Toowoomba for over 20 years, Ms Holt values the sense of community people get from living in our region.
"It has been a real privilege to talk to people about what they want to see in our community," she said.
"The people of our region are very knowledgeable and know what we need locally. As the Independent representative, it would be my role to make sure that people are getting the support they need to grow our region and create more opportunities for our residents and businesses."
