Spectacular Response To MRRA's Request For Comments On Protecting Macedon Ranges



MRRA has received a spectacular response from candidates and parties, at what is an extremely busy time for these people, to its request for comments on protection in Macedon Ranges.


MRRA sincerely and deeply thanks all candidates and parties who responded and expressed their support.  Your participation has enhanced democracy in this part of the world, and told Macedon Ranges people they aren't alone.


We thank especially Dianne Hadden and the Greens for their support and for also taking time to meet with us and hear first-hand our concerns.


Thanks also to People Power and Rob Guthrie, Dave Barry and Steve ‘Jack’ Medcraft who came to us.


Finally, we express our great appreciation to Ted Baillieu, Dave Davis and Robyne Head for their time (and it has been a lot!), for meeting several times with us, listening, and taking our concerns seriously, as shown in the Liberal's 17/11/06 announcement.


MRRA wishes all candidates well.
