I made it my mission to work for you
When I first came to this area in the 1980s, facilities were limited. Commuters had limited train services and car parking; the number of parking fines were more in number than in many other parts of Sydney and parking spaces were limited. Our hospital lacked resources for a growing diverse community and the city had no major recreational facilities for families to enjoy.
It was clear this community needed a voice and resources. As an independent Councillor, I rallied for the people. I made it my mission to work for you. While we did not achieve all – and for example at the hospital level there is still more to do – I believe my work so far has made a positive contribution.
Let me be your voice
I will continue to be your voice on Fairfield City Council. There are still so much to do, to empower our community to stand up and be heard. I need your help to continue to build on the greatness of this city and its people.
Innovative Health Services
You might be aware that Council does not have any official platform to lead reform in the local hospital system. However, the Mayor Frank Carbone and I have continued to support initiatives to raise funds to assist our local Fairfield Hospital.
It’s important for us to continue to demand the necessary resources for our diverse community. One of my key priorities I am taking to this election is to create a medical hub in Sydney’s South West where we can tap into the skills of migrants and refugees to provide health care and the expansion of our local emergency departments.
