Meet Our New Coolamon Shire Councillor
There's a mood for change across the Cootamundra electorate, and one Coolamon Councillor is now joining the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party.
As people across the Cootamundra electorate are considering changing their vote to now support the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party, one Coolamon Shire Councillor is making a switch.
Coolamon Shire Councillor Jeremy Crocker today announced he will now officially be a Councillor for the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party.
Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party Cootamundra by-election candidate Matthew Stadtmiller welcomed Cr Crocker to the team.
“It’s great to have Councillor Crocker on the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party team,” Mr Stadtmiller said.
“He was originally elected as an independent councillor but now has the full backing of the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party behind him.
“People across this electorate are changing their vote to support the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party, and Jeremy Crocker joining us reflects just that.
“Everybody’s tired of being taken for granted by the National Party. It’s time for a change.”
Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party Coolamon Shire Councillor Jeremy Crocker said that joining the party will allow him to be a stronger representative.
“I will now be a Councillor with the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party because I believe they’re the party that better represents rural people,” Cr Crocker said.
“The Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party fought forced Council amalgamations and are standing up against the city Liberal Party Government.
“I love Coolamon Shire and as a Councillor I want to get the best deal I possibly can for my local area.
“This only makes my ability to work as a Councillor better because I now have the strong backing of a team with the balance of power in the Upper House of State Parliament.”
Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party MLC Robert Borsak said Cr Crocker be the party’s eyes and ears in Coolamon.
“Councillor Crocker will be a key representative for our party in this region, along with Matthew Stadtmiller,” Mr Borsak said.
“In Budget Estimates hearings in Parliament Local Government Minister Gabrielle Upton refused to rule-out future forced Council amalgamations.
“Having Councillor Crocker on Coolamon Council will make sure they’re safe from any future amalgamation.”
Councillor Crocker is the second Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party councillor in the region. By-election candidate Matthew Stadtmiller was recently elected to Hilltops Shire Council.
