Supporters had the opportunity to ask questions and stress there concerns with the proposed closure of the airport. Based on our first meeting we are now arranging meetings across Regional Victoria to give the voice of the Country.
One other thing is that we are now running two petitions, a online petition and a written petition. Even if you have signed the online petition please download the written one from the website and pass it around your family, friends and work colleagues and help us gather signatures. Once the form is complete please fax or email it back to us. If you received a email about the online petition being taken offline please ignore this as we are now running two petitions. The online petition can be used as supporting and miscellaneous documents so both petitions can be tabled in parliament.
The full meeting can be watched online through our website, just logon to www.saveessendonairport.com.au and click on the new youtube channel. Once again thank you so much for all who attended and have supported us and we look forward to seeing you all at further meetings. One last thing if you attended the meeting I would appreciate any feedback on the meeting so we can make sure we incorporate your suggestions in the next meeting.
If you have any further questions or would like to find our further
information please email us via our website or phone us on 0437 078 832.
