"I am dismayed by successive governments and, dare I say, the contempt they (the Nats) have held for our farmers.

Ken Harris of Newcastle writes:

"I came across your website while researching alternative forms of representation in our State.

"You're saying what I'm thinking. Future generations will need a strong, thriving farming sector and the time for action is past.

"While I have never farmed, I have spent my life firstly in Sydney, and for the last 38 years in Newcastle. I have always maintained a high degree of respect for anyone who chooses to live in the the rural areas of Australia. None more than my home state of New South Wales.

"I am dismayed by successive governments and, dare I say, the contempt they (the Nats) have held for our farmers.

"After more than 180 years of settlement west of the Divide, and still the insecurity and marginal nature of life on the land remain. I don't believe that any government has had a long term plan to secure the future viability of regional NSW.

"The media writes of the Murray-Darling Plan, fish kills and endless investigations. I note here that to my knowledge, no new water has been introduced to the Darling River in decades. The problem will not be fixed by buying back water rights and farms.

"In closing, while I can be of limited help to your cause (living in Newcastle), you may find that you have an increasing level of support in both Newcastle and the Hunter Valley.

Good luck and kind regards, Ken Harris.
