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] 

 

South West Nepalese Community

Community Recognition Statement

Mr ANOULACK CHANTHIVONG (Macquarie Fields) (16:07): I take this opportunity to recognise the South West Nepalese community's contribution to our local area.

I was delighted to attend the organisation's recent event on health awareness at Minto.

There are few more important public policy issues than health and the wellbeing of our community. Raising awareness and providing information to community members is an important part of promoting preventative health.

The medical presenters covered a wide range of topics, including physical, oral and mental health.

I take this opportunity to recognise the organisers for hosting such an important community function. I commend Davendra and the South West Nepalese executive for a job well done. A well‑organised and attended event does not happen by accident, but rather through the continued efforts and dedication of people in our local community.

 I forward to attending future events and working with the South West Nepalese community to make our community a better place.
