Werriwa e-Newsletter

26 February 2021

Dear <<First Name>>

Welcome to the latest edition of the Werriwa e-Newsletter.

This week in Parliament I spoke on a number of issues concerning our community and how the needs of our region are ignored by both State and Federal Governments. Chief among them, the Macquarie Fields lift and the treatment of small landowners at the Aerotropolis.

The Aged Care Royal Commission's Final Report has been given to the Governor General. Labor will consider its details carefully, will offer suggestions and hold the Government to account to fix the appalling situation.

Aged care has been grossly mishandled by successive Coalition Governments. Mr. Morrison has neglected older Australians and the aged care system. It's a national disgrace. Every Australian wants confidence that their family members will be safe and well cared for if they need to enter residential aged care.

It should be remembered that the cuts to the Aged Care Budget by Mr. Morrison as Treasurer have put even more pressure on the aged care sector’s ability to deliver quality care. Cutting the Aged Care Budget at a time when demand for quality care was increasing made no sense and set the ground for the neglect in the sector identified by the Royal Commission.

I hope you all have a great weekend and stay safe.

Kind Regards

Anne

This Week in Parliament

Macquarie Fields Lift

This week in Parliament, I spoke about the lack of a lift at Macquarie Fields Station and the incessant pork barrelling of the NSW State Government following the opening of a new lift at Hawkesbury River Station. While Macquarie Fields was higher on the priority list, it still hasn't even been allocated funds or a date for construction.

My colleague, the State Member for Macquarie Fields, Anoulack Chanthivong has launched a petition to give South-West Sydney #OurFairShare.

Aerotropolis

I have again spoken in Parliament in support of landowners in and around the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.

I’ve written dozens of letters to various Ministers, both State and Federal and I have a met with representatives from the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment. Despite their assurances, the situation has not improved.

Local landowners have been abandoned by the State Government. In response, I have launched a petition calling on the New South Wales Government to provide certainty to landowners.

Vaccine

COVID-19 vaccinations are underway. The vaccine is free of charge and there are currently 5 phases as part of the National Rollout Strategy. First up is quarantine, border and front line health care workers and aged care and disability staff and residents.

Australians need to be assured they’ll have access to the vaccine in a safe and secure manner. Vaccines are safe, they are necessary and they save lives. For us to take our first steps out of this Pandemic, we must follow the guidelines on vaccinations in the upcoming months.

The first areas in Werriwa where the vaccine will be administered are Austral, Glenfield and Prestons.

It may be some time before many of us will be eligible for the vaccine. Until then, make sure your Medicare details are updated and you continue to adhere to the health advice.

Mobile Offices

I will be holding another set of Mobile Offices this Saturday 27 February.

Mobile offices are a great way to stay in touch and let me know what issues matter to you and your family.

I can assist with Federal matters including My Aged Care, Immigration, NDIS, NBN, Centrelink, Veteran’s Affairs, or if you would just like to chat.

I will again be joined by Liverpool City Councillors Nathan Hagarty and Charishma Kaliyanda.

If you have time, pop by for a chat. See below for times and locations.
