Community outcomes

Community Outcomes 

You asked. I listened and acted on your behalf.  

I'm pleased to share some examples of outcomes across many community programs and activities which the ACT Government and responsible Ministers have implemented, in direct response to your requests.  

These examples shows a clear message: I am here to represent you, the people of Murrumbidgee and to act on your behalf for good community outcomes.  

Community members ask me about a wide range of issues. From local municipal issues, like many of those below, to other requests for information, to sensitive and complex community safety issues, public housing, mental health, child protection issues which are not appropriate for me to highlight publicly.

In the 18 months since I stepped into this role as an MLA in October 2020 through to June 2022, I have assisted with over 500 queries from members of our community - below is a selection of outcomes. 

I'll regularly update this list, so please check back in from time to time to see what I'm doing on your behalf as your local representative. I want to encourage people to contact me. If you see a problem or something that needs improvement, send me an email or say hi at the shops. I will always endeavour to obtain a positive outcome as appropriate.
