Budget papers 2018-19

7 June, 2018

It seems strange to be rising in this house to talk about the budget because I would hazard that we are probably the only people in the state of Victoria who are still talking about this budget. The budget has sunk into obscurity and barely a person knows what the government is actually offering in this election year. Those who are still talking about it probably do not believe it, because the gov...  Read More

Beverley Hills Primary School

6 June, 2018

My adjournment matter tonight is directed to the Minister for Education and is in relation to Beverley Hills Primary School and their need for urgent funding. Beverley Hills Primary School is one of the many wonderful schools in the Warrandyte electorate, and they will be celebrating 60 years of education next year. Unfortunately the school is falling apart around them. On a recent visit to t...  Read More

ANZAC Day 2018

1 May, 2018

Today I want to pay tribute to the fantastic work of my local RSLs, which did a fantastic job commemorating Anzac Day this year. The day started at the Doncaster RSL, which was attended by a large number of people and led by president Charles Collins. It was fantastic to see so many young people attending and participating in the services and marches. It was also an honour to once again march dow...  Read More

Warrandyte electorate student leadership and Run Warrandyte

7 March, 2018

I would like to acknowledge the great work my local schools are doing in nurturing new leaders in our community. I have had the privilege of presenting school leader badges at many of my schools over the past month, and it is always a pleasure to see these students stepping up to take on these leadership roles in order to contribute to the school year. I have been able to honour students at Park O...  Read More

Yarra River Protection (Wilip-gin Birrarung murron) Bill 2017

9 August, 2017

I rise to join the debate on the Yarra River (Wilip-gin Birrarung murron) Bill 2017. It was interesting to hear the Minister for Planning introduce this. There were a lot of grandiose statements. To listen to him you would think that no-one had ever thought about protecting the Yarra before. Certainly that may well have been the case under the Bracks and Brumby governments. When I was first electe...  Read More

Warrandyte Bridge

8 August, 2017

My contribution for the debate is directed to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. Residents in the Warrandyte electorate are raising concerns about the continuous delays with the upgrade works to the Warrandyte Bridge. The Warrandyte Bridge would be used as one of the main routes in the event of a major emergency and as an evacuation route for many residents. Those residents are now facing ano...  Read More

Constituency Question

21 March, 2017

My question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and let us hope that I can get a response from him this time. The Warrandyte Historical Society and the Warrandyte Community Association have joined together with a view to establishing an urban advisory panel for the overseeing of the long-awaited redevelopment of Warrandyte Bridge. This idea has my support as well as the support of a numb...  Read More

Doncaster Gardens Primary School

21 March, 2017

My contribution is directed to the Minister for Education. My request is that he visit Doncaster Gardens Primary School so he can see for himself the urgent need for an allocation of double-storey portables to the school. In raising the matter I also wish to place on record and acknowledge the outstanding contribution that Doncaster Gardens Primary School makes to my electorate of Warrandyte. Situ...  Read More

Constituency Question on the intersection of Ringwood-Warrandyte Road, Croydon Road, Brumbys Road and Husseys Lane

8 February, 2017

My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. I refer the minister to the intersection of Ringwood-Warrandyte Road, Croydon Road, Brumbys Road and Husseys Lane in Warrandyte South. This intersection has been highlighted as dangerous by a number of my constituents, who are very concerned about the possibility of a serious accident occurring. I have written before on this i...  Read More

Bourke Street Tragedy

7 February, 2017

It was fantastic to see the outpouring of grief from Melburnians following this tragedy. It was a show of support that was evidenced by the number of tributes that were placed in the Bourke Street Mall and the crowds that turned up for the vigil at Federation Square. There are also obviously many who chose other, more private, ways to express their support and their grief at the tragedy that happe...  Read More

Warrandyte Electorate Schools

27 October, 2016

Today I rise to highlight the inadequacy of the Labor government's recent announcement of funding for schools in the Warrandyte electorate. Any funding is of course welcome, and there is no question that the school communities across the 10 schools that are listed to receive funding are pleased to have received something. What is disappointing is the minister's obvious lack of knowledge or ca...  Read More

Springvale Road, Donvale

11 October, 2016

I rise with a matter for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. I ask him to install a pedestrian crossing on Springvale Road between Old Warrandyte Road and Mitcham Road in Donvale. This 1.5-kilometre section of road, which carries heavy traffic particularly during peak times, gives local residents no safe crossing to access the bus stops for public transport services to the city or to the local...  Read More
