It's not every year you celebrate a 90th birthday, and so today Hon David Speirs MP and I hosted our annual 90th Birthday Afternoon Tea for all the wonderful 90 year olds in our community.

At 11am on 11 November 1918, the guns on the Western Front fell silent. After four years of fighting, World War I had at last come to an end.

2020 has certainly been a year we will never forget.
When I'm at community events, phone canvassing, door knocking or speaking with residents at my "Coffee with Corey" catch-ups, many of you have taken the time to share with me how your family or small business has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, creating the greatest health and economic challenge of our time.
With your feedback, personal stories and suggestions on how we can better improve our community, I appreciate how important it is we create jobs, invest in infrastructure, improve public transport and provide health services closer to home.
We have thrown everything at this virus. To save lives and livelihoods, to save jobs and businesses, and to cement South Australia as the safest state in the safest nation.Read more
