You may have recently picked up the phone and spoken to me or one of my volunteers. We have been phoning residents across the electorate to discuss important local issues and give people a chance to raise any matters they would like my assistance with. Cost of living pressures and the rising electricty prices are issues that are constantly being raised with me. If you have any issues you would like to discuss, then please feel free to get in touch.
As well as hitting the phones I have been out doorknocking in Marden and Felixstow and at supermarkets at The Avenues in Stepney, the Firle Plaza and the Marden Shopping Centre. As always, please stop by for a chat as I am eager to hear from constituents about matters important to you.
Updates on Life Care developments
Since my last email, I have now met with the Minister for Planning, the Hon John Rau MP. I sought the opportunity to meet with the Minister, because it's imperative that your concerns around privacy issues and the bulk and scale of the two developments are passed directly to the Minister himself. As your local MP, I ensure you that I will continue to represent you on these proposed developments.
What is happening locally?
Rose Park Primary School Year 5 students recently held their exhibition evening. We heard from neuroscientist Dr Dylan De Los Angelos, from UniSA and were able to view all the projects the students have been working on, with the theme being How the World Works. It was inspiring to see the hard work that was put into each project.
