Labor to hold a ‘listening tour’ across cities

The Australian Labor Party’s cities task force will begin a ‘listening tour’ across regional cities in January.

The tour will be lead by task force Chair Andrew Giles, Member for Scullin, and begin in Newcastle, one of 50 regional capitals in Australia.

Labor has stated that regional cities are central to Labor’s nation building agenda, so the party wants to hear directly from communities about how to bring their cities vision together with unique local needs.

Labor is welcoming suggestions on which cities should be visited; feedback can be provided by visiting www.andrewgiles.com.au/bettercities
