What issues are vital in Forrestfield?
For Western Australia, Perth and indeed the Forrestfield electorate, ensuring there are jobs for locals is a priority and something I am committed too. The Forrestfield Airport Link will create 2000 jobs during development and ongoing jobs. Law and order is also a big issues and I’m committed to building a $13 million police station in Forrestfield.
How will you improve job growth?
As mentioned before the construction of the Forrestfield Airport Link and delivering infill sewerage o Kenwick has similar potential as the airport link.
What is your plan to improve the economy?
The partial sale of Western Power will generate $3 billion Next Generation Account, which fund the construction of new infrastructure across the state and locally, one such project is the $10.5 million upgrade to the Darling Range Sports College.
What major projects will you advocate for if re-elected?
The $10.million upgrade to the Darling Range Sports College, infill sewerage for parts of Kenwick, a new $13 million police station in Forrestfield, the $500,000 stage 2 upgrade to Hartfield Park Sports Centre and a number of other school upgrade including resurfacing the courts at East Kenwick Primary School.
How do you plan to address the meth crisis?
I have been working hard locally to help the community fight this drug and held a community meth forum last June. This and other forums like it were integral to the State Government formulating its new policy, which was announced last Sunday – a comprehensive $190 million package to take meth off the streets and help addicts reclaim their lives. It is the toughest approach in Australia.
What would be your first act if re-elected?
Continue to do what I have for the past four years, advocate on behalf of my local communities and work with them to ensure every single one of my election commitments is delivered.
