Another National Party Member of Parliament who cares more about themselves than their electorate: Adrian Piccoli is about to announce his retirement as he secures a cushy job in Sydney.

Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party MLC Robert Borsak today called for voters in the electorate of Murray to consider a fresh alternative to the National Party after news of Adrian Piccoli’s impending resignation broke in The Daily Telegraph.

“Adrian Piccoli’s resignation has been a long time coming,” Mr Borsak said.

“I could hear a collective sigh of relief from the electorate of Murray all the way over in New South Wales Parliament House as the news broke in The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday evening.

“The Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party will indeed be fielding a candidate in the electorate of Murray. This is an electorate that we have been watching very closely for some time now.

“The issues with Griffith Hospital and the Murrumbidgee Local Health District are just the tip of the iceberg when you consider how much the National Party has let this electorate down.

“Murray deserves better, and this is a chance for another rural electorate to do exactly what Orange did last November.

“It’s time to throw-off the party who is just doing whatever the city Liberal Party tell them to do, and elect a Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party candidate.

“We are not afraid to stand up for rural interests against city elites.”

Mr Borsak said that his party is considering candidates for the electorate and that any announcement will be made closer to the Murray by-election date.
