WA Labor Shadow Treasurer Ben Wyatt will visit Geraldton in early August.
Mr Wyatt is also Shadow Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Native Title, Cost of Living, Kimberley and Pilbara.
Mr Wyatt spent his early years in the Goldfields before graduating from Aquinas College in 1991. He studied Arts and Law at UWA and attained a Master’s Degree with Distinction from the London School of Economics.
He trained as an officer in the Australian Army Reserves graduating from the Royal Military College, Duntroon, in 1996. Ben was awarded the Australian Defence Medal in 2008.
Mr Wyatt was elected as the Member for Victoria Park in 2006 following the retirement of Dr Geoff Gallop.
Agricultural Region MLC Darren West said he was delighted to have Ben Wyatt in the Mid West for a two day visit on August 5 and 6 to meet with community groups and stakeholders.
“Investment in the Mid West has virtually stopped under the Barnett Liberal/National Government and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to outline areas of greatest need” he said.
“By contrast, WA Labor invested heavily in Geraldton when last in Government.”
He will also be guest speaker at a Geraldton Labor Dinner at Tides Restaurant on Wednesday night at 7 pm.
Mr Wyatt will also attend a “Pollies in the Pub” at the Camel Bar to answer questions and meet with members of the community. Everyone is welcome.
