Welcome to Crewther’s Corner, outlining some of the exciting things happening in the Dunkley electorate.
I’d particularly like to welcome first-time readers in Carrum Downs, Skye and Sandhurst, with the Australian Electoral Commission recently deciding to bring the whole of these fantastic suburbs into the boundaries of Dunkley! At the same time,
I’m sad to be losing the wonderful residents of Mornington and Baxter from Dunkley.
This edition I thought I’d do something a
little different. Instead of telling you myself what has been happening, I’ve shared some articles, magazine clippings and feedback from community members so you can hear from others about some projects and activities in Dunkley.
A few highlights though are the $453 million Federal and State Liberal funding secured towards extending metro rail from Frankston- Baxter, including electrification, duplication, new stations at Frankston East (Frankston Hospital/ Monash Uni) and Langwarrin, an upgraded Baxter station, and park-and-ride.
Together we’ve also achieved the return
of the meals service for the homeless and disadvantaged from October, being run by City Life (now Frankston Life) and the Frankston Churches Breakfast Club from Chisholm TAFE. Spinraza has also been listed on the PBS to save the lives of children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, funds have been achieved for Tourette Syndrome camps, and the Modern Slavery Bill has been
put through Parliament through my work as the Chair of Parliament’s Foreign Affairs and Aid Sub- Committee.
Please contact me at any time if you or your family ever need help with anything!
