Parliamentary Speeches

It's my job to represent the people of my electorate and that means being the voice of my constituents in State Parliament.

I like to use my time in Parliament to highlight the great work being done in our community by schools, organisations and individuals who genuinely try to make a positive difference to many people's lives.

I also share my thoughts on various pieces of legislation - always with these burning questions in mind: "How will this affect my constituents?" "Does this legislation make life better for people in my electorate?" and "Is this good policy that doesn't unfairly affect local residents?"

Below you can read through my Parliamentary speeches. If you have any suggestions on groups, organisations or people who deserve a mention in State Parliament, please don't hesitate to get in touch with my office on 02 9618 2077 or email [email protected] 

 

Drive Out Violence Convoy

November 20, 2019

Community Recognition Statement

Violence in all its forms against all people, especially women, is both intolerable and unacceptable.

While Australia has come a long way, it is an issue that is still so prevalent in our communities.

Violence against women has an impact on everyone, and because of that we must all support the mission to end such violence.

The annual Campbelltown City Drive Out Violence Convoy assists in this important mission and raises awareness about domestic and family violence against women.

The convoy has been a great success and will be running for its fifth year this week. The convoy is a great initiative and organisations such as Big Yellow Umbrella, Campbelltown City Council, NSW Police and the SES, as well as local schools, will be participating to ensure all women are safe and respected.

I give my full support and commitment to the mission of stopping all violence against women. Domestic and family violence are never acceptable and should not be tolerated in a modern Australia.

It is everyone's duty and responsibility to work towards making our communities safe for all people.
