Hey <<First Name>>,
I'm pleased to bring you a snapshot of some of the work I have been doing here in Sydney.......

Trucks on Maddox Street 

Local residents around Maddox Street in Alexandria have been campaigning hard to stop oversize trucks illegally invading Maddox Street. I have been campaigning for Council to use its powers to stop and fine oversize trucks as they illegally pass through these quiet residential streets. The hard and persistent work of the local residents has resulted in a recommendation to close Maddox Street to through traffic but this may take years. I'm not satisfied that this is the end of the matter. I want immediate action to stop the trucks "rat running" through Maddox Street.

Thanks to the persistence of residents and my continued Council pressure, City Rangers now have the authorisation to enforce infringement notices to vehicles violating the weight limit on City of Sydney roads! 

It is great to see that after putting forward multiple motions to Council for clarification of the responsibility of the City of Sydney and the RMS on local roads, that an outcome has been achieved for the residents of Alexandria.

Well done to all of the local residents - keep up the fight!

Fitzroy Gardens Public Toilets

I was very pleased to announce that the City of Sydney have finally responded to my campaign to improve the quality and management of the Fitzroy Gardens Public Toilets. 

Improvements will include 3 fully refurbished toilets, increase in cleaning visits and 3 security patrols a day. This is fantastic news! Its to great to see that after 6 years of campaigning the community has been heard.

Friends of Pyrmont Community Dinner

I had a great time cooking and preparing dinner for the Pyrmont community at the local Community Centre. The monthly dinner is a good opportunity for local members to meet and to get to know one another and I was honoured to be apart of it! I look forward to doing it again soon. 

HomeGround Launch

HomeGround Real Estate will provide opportunities for people who are at risk of homelessness due to being priced out of the market, or who are currently experiencing homelessness.

I am proud to support such an innovative and appropriate response to Sydney’s current housing problem.
