On Sunday, I was pleased to announce that there is now a light at the end of the tunnel for local residents, commuters and everyone else who has followed our Fix Oaklands Crossing journey!

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
