As we approach the end of 2023, I want to take a moment to reflect on the highs and lows that have shaped our community in Geraldton and the broader Mid West region. With the combined efforts of government, housing advocates and organisations, our city become the second community in WA to achieve a measurable reduction in rough sleeping homelessness this year. Personal achievements include the opening the of the $3.5 million basketball stadium, hosting Community Cabinet in February, the opening of the EV Network, announcing second stage works for the Spalding redevelopment, the opening of the Chapman Road bike path and the launch of Nexus Airlines. I proudly stood by Health Minister Amber-Jade Sanderson to announce stage two of the Geraldton Health Campus redevelopment tender was awarded with works beginning in 2024. My biggest inspirations this year have come from our youth. From Aboriginal head boys who shared their stories at Yamatji on Country and Disability Youth advocate Lee Nelson, starting a Youth Market. Aboriginal Trainee of the Year Kaylee Woodley travelled to France for international hairdressing skills showcase and with the support of my partnership with the JK Foundation, Kynan Townsend competed at the taekwondo championships in Kazakhstan. Geraldton set a record by electing three male Aboriginal students to the position of school captain and celebrated more than 20 students as recipients of my Edith Dircksey Cowan Achievement Award. I publicly gave my support to the Yes campaign in The Voice referendum because I support a future where Aboriginal people are better consulted on decisions that affect their livelihood and future. As we navigate the coming year, rest assured that I am committed to representing your interests and working towards a bright future for Geraldton. Thank you to all the frontline workers who will be working over this holiday season, providing essential services to keep our community safe and healthy. Wishing you and your loved ones a peaceful holiday season and a happy and healthy new year.
