Rochester left off MP's Christmas card list

Campaspe Shire councillor Leigh Wilson is hoping a friendly ‘Merry Christmas from Rochester’ card might help remind Member for Northern Victoria Kaye Darveniza of the town after she forgot to mention it in a Christmas card.

A seasonn's greetings card, from state Member for Northern Victoria Kaye Darveniza, lists all the towns in the electorate except Rochester.


Campaspe Shire councillor Leigh Wilson is hoping Rochester will receive some special attention next year after the town was left off Member for Northern Victoria Kaye Darveniza’s Christmas card list.

Addressed to the Rochester ward councillor, the season’s greetings card lists all the towns in the Labor member’s electorate except Rochester.

During a break at Campaspe Shire Council’s meeting on Tuesday, Cr Wilson started looking for Rochester in the fine print, but when he got to the letter R, he found Robinvale, Rostron and Rubicon.

‘‘I immediately started looking for other places that may have been missed, but couldn’t find any,’’ he said.

‘‘Ballendella, Rushworth, Nanneella, Echuca, Echuca West, Echuca Village, they were all there.

‘‘It’s not a great outcome for Rochester. We’re trying to wave the flag for our town, so we’re not left off the political map.

‘‘This significant party has forgotten about the town.’’

Not wanting to start a political slanging match, Mr Wilson hopes a friendly ‘Merry Christmas from Rochester’ card he sent on Thursday may remind Ms Darveniza of the ‘forgotten town’.

‘‘I’m hoping when I send this on behalf of the Rochester community that she may consider special attention to Rochester next year,’’ he said.
