Working together to deliver for Casey

On Friday 8th February I was pleased to announce that $20million of Federal Government funding has been allocated for the duplication of the Maroondah Hwy in Coldstream and for traffic lights. These works will make the Maroondah Hwy, Killara Rd, Station St and North Gateway intersections much safer.

Thursday, 20 December 2018

The 2018 Casey Volunteer Awards recognised the service and dedication of hundreds of volunteers in our community.

It was an honour to provide certificates of recognition to 7 community groups and 46 individuals.

The many thousands of hours of volunteering each year are so vital to our local community.

When you switch on CCTV security cameras, you switch off crime.

On Saturday 8 December 2018 a new CCTV camera network in Mooroolbark was launched.

CCTV Security cameras both detect and deter crime, helping make our towns and suburbs safer places to live, work and shop.

More than 1.2 million jobs have been created since the Government came to office in September 2013, after the Australian economy created an additional 37,000 jobs in November.

The latest labour force figures, released today by the ABS, show the number of jobs created in November is almost double the 20,000 jobs the market expected. Seasonally adjusted employment is now 285,700 higher than it was a year ago.

Total employment is at a record high of 12,694,300.

Fixing the Budget

Thursday, 20 December 2018

The Coalition Government’s recent Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook (MYEFO) has confirmed that the Federal Budget will return to surplus in 2019-20.

Returning to surplus is no accident.

The Government has spent five years cleaning up Labor’s mess.

This is part of the Coalition Government’s plan to keep the economy strong and to guarantee the essential services that Australians rely on.

Mental health care for young Australians is set for a $51.8 million funding boost.

The Coalition Government’s extra investment in the national network of headspace centres and the digital portal, eheadspace, means young people will have access to around 14,000 additional services, shorter wait times and extra clinical staff.
