It was a great pleasure to see Senator Sam Dastyari visit Port Macquarie to hold a Politics in the Pub event at the Settlers Inn on Saturday night.
Any time senior politicians visit regional areas to actually talk with people, especially outside of election cycles is fantastic.
Sam was very charismatic, and happy to engage in conversation with people from every political persuasion, not just Labor voters.
We would love to see more of this, politicians being open to prove they represent everyone, and keen to give up weekends to meet with people for real feedback, not just for a pending election.
