Tax cuts for small business and investment in local road infrastructure rated highly on the federal campaign trail in Young last week as Riverina Nationals’ MP Michael McCormack visited town.
Fresh from campaigning throughout the many new Shires in the Riverina electorate, Mr McCormack said he was pleased with the positive reception of Young-based businesses to the tax cuts for families and small business.
“I ran a small business for more than eight years and as a father of three, as well as the Editor of a local newspaper, I employed many local people and encouraged them to share my passion and commitment to the region and its people,” Mr McCormack said.
“That’s why I understand how important it is to ensure local people, particularly young people, can get their first job and start a career in rural and regional Australia.
“We want to foster an environment in which small businesses are encouraged to hire more trainees and apprentices, as well as giving opportunities to older people who want to work part-time,” he said.
The election is on July 2.
