Mobile Offices and Community Forums

Mobile Offices

In the last quarter of last year, I ran 15 mobile offices, and met a wide variety of Canberra residents to talk about local and national issues.

Over the coming months, I'll be holding more mobile offices. These are a good opportunity to raise issues that are specific to you or your family. Here are the first dates for 2011.

  • Sat 26 February - Canberra Show, EPIC – 9.00 to 11.00 am

  • Sat 19 March - Jamison Shops – 10.00 to 11.00 am & Lyneham Shops – 11.30 am to 12.30 pm

  • Wed 30 March - Bus Interchange, Civic – 8.00-9.00am

  • Wed 6 April - Garema Place, Civic – 12.30 to 1.30 pm

  • Sat 9 April - Gungahlin Marketplace – 10.00 to 11.00 am & Dickson Woolies – 11.30 am to 12.30 pm

Community Forums

In addition to my mobile offices, I'll be taking a leaf from my predecessor Bob McMullan's book, and running a series of community meetings. As part of these, I'll be delivering a speech on an issue that I thought might be of interest to Fraser residents. You're welcome to come to just the speech, just the community forum, or both.

The first four forums will be scheduled at different times of the day, and in different parts of the electorate. I hope as many residents as possible can come along.
