Victorian Labor Leader Daniel Andrews joined around 100 local senior citizens at a morning tea hosted by State Labor Member for Narre Warren South Judith Graley last week.

The event was one of the annual seniors morning teas hosted by Ms Graley at Brentwood Park Neighbourhood House in Berwick.

Ms Graley conducted a talk show style interview with Mr Andrews, providing local residents with a greater familiarity of their alternative premier.

“It was great for residents to get to know Daniel in a relaxed, warm and welcoming environment,” Ms Graley said

“A number of issues were raised with Daniel, including greater concessions for pensioners,”

“Seniors also discussed the Baillieu Government’s $290 million cut to TAFE, which is having a devastating impact on their grandchildren’s future job prospects.”

Ms Graley said that senior citizens are very important members of the community and she had been spending a lot of time talking to them about their needs and requirements from government.

“One of my major priorities as a local MP is to ensure that seniors receive the services and support that they deserve from government,” Ms Graley said

“My door is always open to seniors who require assistance in any matter.”

Ms Graley said that she was pleased that everyone had a great time at the morning tea.

“The event was a great opportunity for seniors to have a chat with Daniel and I, as well as raise important issues with us.”

Judith Graley’s Seniors Information Kit was distributed at the morning tea. The kit contains useful information on Federal, State and Local Government services for seniors. For a copy of the Kit, please phone 9704 6055.
