Murphy's Paddock Petition

 

I am very mindful that development needs to be appropriate and sustainable, and that our suburbs remain liveable.

I am gravely concerned about the proposed residential development of Murphy's Paddock, in particular about the density, greenspace and infrastructure around this project.

If this is a concern for you too, please sign this petition

Australia Post says no to Everton Park Postal Services

Thu 12 Oct 2017

Australia Post has refused pleas from Everton Park residents to provide a local Post Office.

In response to a letter from State Member for Everton, Tim Mander, requesting they reopen a service, Australia Post blamed an 'ongoing decline of customers' for the closure of Everton Park Post Office.

Angry Everton Park residents are bewildered by the cost cutting exercise especially in light of the recent multi-million dollars given to outgoing CEO Ahmed Fahour.

State Member for Everton, Tim Mander, echoed the calls for the Post Office to remain open.

A petition endorsed by Tim Mander gained 1500 signatures in three weeks and has tabled in Federal Parliament.

Everton Park Post Office

Mon 18 Sep 2017

After over 100 years serving the Everton community, the Everton Park Post Office closed its doors in July. I was frustrated to hear this decision by Australia Post because I know that many people in the community use and rely on it and deserve to have access to these services within the suburb.

I know the local community was disappointed to hear these plans, so I sponsored a petition to Federal Parliament asking for the Post Office to reopen or be relocated within Everton Park, and I received an overwhelming response - almost 1500 signatures!

The petition went before the Petitions Committee in early August and has now been tabled in Federal Parliament. I have also written to Australia Post again. I will keep you updated on any progress.

The Post Office may be closed, but I will do my best to bring it back. Thank you for your support!

Bunyaville facilities

Thu 7 Sep 2017

We are very fortunate in our electorate to have Bunyaville Conservation Park right on our doorstep. With several different bush tracks, picnic tables, barbecues, drinking water and toilets, it's a fantastic location for a family day out or to escape the city buzz. I'm also currently working to have better barbecues installed for people to enjoy.

There are several community groups that operate within Bunyaville, including Friends of Bunyaville, Enoggeroos and Bunyaville Trail Runners and Bunya Belles. Every Saturday morning enthusiastic runners set off from James Drysdale Reserve for the Bunyaville Parkrun. Everyone is welcome! I had a BBQ the other week for these dedicated runners and am working with these groups to ensure each event has defibrillators.

It really is a fantastic location and we are lucky  to have such a gem in our electorate, as well as so many local groups providing opportunities for us to enjoy it.
