I asked Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack what makes him optimistic.
Michael kindly told me, “When I get out of bed every day, I look forward to making sure that we can build a better rural and regional Australia.
“Serving the people living in the regions is what keeps me optimistic, even in the toughest of days. These people have put their trust in me to fight and deliver for our local communities, and I will always speak up for them loudly.
“I have lived my life by this motto – promising not to be silent when I ought to speak.”
The Honourable Michael McCormack MP is Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development. He is the Leader of The Nationals and the Federal Member for Riverina.
