A day of politicians on the Northern Rivers (again)

  • State Minister for Local Government Paul Toole will present funding to the Richmond River Gun Club this morning.
  • Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan will make a $3 million announcement to fix road Black Spots across the region at 10am, at the intersection of Union and Casino streets in South Lismore.
