Advocacy at Federal Parliament Canberra

Posted by antonellaceli on October 10, 2012 at 8:00 AM

Representing the community on issues that matter most to them at Federal Parliamanet and advocating to Parliamentarians on their behalf. Travelling up to Canberra for the National General Assembly of Local Government provided for opportunity to meet with Federal Parliamentarians.

Cr Celi was able to advocate to Parliamentarians on issues that included:

  1. Better access to public transport for the Mornington Peninsula
  2. Better access to education and employment opportunity pathways
  3. HACC (Home and Community Care) services - includign aged care services funding
  4. Cuts to TAFE Funding in particular on behalf of Chisholm in Rosebud
  5. The development of the Port of Hastings
  6. The NBN rollout for the Mornington Peninsula
  7. Better access to universities for our young people
  8. Advocating for eligibiity of educational allowances for our young people who travel off the Mornington Peninsula to pursue their education

Sitting face to face with Federal Parliamentarians who are wiling to listen and understand the concerns of our community is very important because decision makers need to know what our community is experiencing and how much we need additional investment in infrastructure, programs and services that matter most to the community.
