Werriwa e-Newsletter

07 May 2021

Dear <<First Name>>

Next week I return to Parliament for Budget Week.

We must ensure that the next chapter of Australia is about building a nation where our economy works for all Australians and where all of our people, not just some of our people, have opportunities to thrive and prosper.

Australians can’t afford to return to pre-pandemic conditions of stagnant wages, insecure jobs and increased debt. The Government's real test is whether next week’s Budget lays out a credible plan to help people get ahead and build a better future for themselves.

Following Budget Week I will send out a special Newsletter breaking down the Budget and showing how it affects you and your family.

I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy Mothers Day.

Photographer Program

Fairfield City Council are looking to appoint their first City photographer for the 2021 Fairfield City Photographer program. It will involve documenting Fairfield City's history that will feature in Fairfield City Heritage Collection website, and in library branches as part of an exhibition later in the year.

If you have experience in photography, or know somebody that does, this is a great opportunity as well as a fantastic way to support the community.

No Health Worker Parking Tax

NSW Labor are calling on residents to sign their petition about the State Government's plans to introduce a parking tax for front-line health workers.

Health workers have been at the front-line of NSW's ongoing response to the COVID-19 Pandemic and do not deserve to be slapped with a new parking tax of more than $1,000 a year just to go to work.

If you call my office on (02) 8783 0977 or email me on, I will send you a copy of the petition to sign and return to my office.

I urge everyone to get in contact and sign the petition.
