Standing up for my electorate

 

An important part of my job as your representative in the State Parliament is making sure I speak up on behalf of my constituents.

One of the ways I'm able to do that is by lodging written questions to Ministers about Government policy or local issues to ensure our area isn't given a raw deal.

This can be an effective way to keep the Government honest and to put them on notice that our community won't settle for unfair treatment, a reduction in services or broken promises.

Some examples of written questions I have lodged include:

  • A Service NSW Centre for Edmondson Park

The Liberal Government is opening new Service NSW Centres but local residents still need to travel to Gregory Hills to access vital services. When will we be given the resources our community needs?

 

  • Hurlstone Agricultural High School

I have asked numerous questions as part of my Hands off Hurlstone campaign. I will fight to save as much green open space as possible and retain high-quality agricultural education at Hurlstone, including a working dairy.

 

  • Macquarie Fields Station lift

The Liberal Government's own data shows Macquarie Fields Station should have been upgraded before Clarendon, Hawkesbury River and Como. How much longer will local residents be forced to wait until we have a fully-accessible station?

 

  • Education

Local students deserve air-conditioning in all classrooms, upgrades to school facilities and infrastructure to make sure they can get to and from school safely. I use Questions on Notice to fight for our community's fair share.

 

  • Police resources

Our community deserves to feel safe so that's why I asked the Police Minister about the future of Macquarie Fields Police Station and police numbers under plans to merge the Macquarie Fields Local Area Command with Campbelltown Local Area Command.  I want the Government to guarantee police resources won't be downgraded as part of this merger.
