Informing and Involving

I use regular newsletters and meetings to publicise and get action on important issues and force governments to respond.

I meet with constituents, at my office and in their neighbourhoods, to listen to their concerns and develop responses to the problems affecting them. I regularly attend and speak at public forums.

I have developed this web site to provide easy public access to my policies, speeches and media releases. Further Information is available on request from my office.

I am committed to continue consulting and working with you. I will hold regular public meetings, distribute newsletters and develop the web site to keep you informed about important issues in our area and my work for a better and safer Bligh.
