Each year I have the honour of presenting Community Recognition Awards to deserving people in our community whose work tends to go under the radar. These people work tirelessly to improve and serve our local area but are often not formally recognised. It is often the lesser known efforts that make the biggest difference to the lives of others. Knowing this, I established these Community Recognition Awards to seek out those people and acknowledge how much their work is appreciated.Read more

I was honoured to speak at the City of Holdfast Bay Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony at Glenelg Foreshore recently.
With clear skies and a fantastic view, it was a perfect day to meet and celebrate with the 80 new Australian Citizens from my local community. With residents coming from all around the world, including China, Germany, India and the United Kingdom, it shows just how much of a multicultural nation Australia has become. Since 1945, seven million people have migrated to Australia and one in four Australians were born overseas. Over at the Marion RSL, a further 33 people became Australian Citizens and were warmly congratulated by my State and Federal colleagues, Nicolle Flint MP, the Hon David Speirs MP and Stephen Patterson MP.Read more
