The Federal Member for Aston, The Hon Alan Tudge MP, has outlined his priorities for Knox in one of his first speeches to Parliament since being re-elected.
In discussing the priorities of his next three years representing Aston in Federal Parliament, Mr Tudge focused on safety, improving local roads, strengthening Knox community institutions including schools and sporting clubs, establishing the Knox Honour Roll, supporting small business and manufacturers, and reducing cost of living pressures on households.
“My first priority is to assist in making a safer Knox area,” said Mr Tudge.
“I have done a survey that says one in 10 people do not feel safe in the area so that has to be an absolute priority.”
Mr Tudge emphasised the importance that local institutions play in making Knox a strong family community.
“In particular, I think about the local schools, the larger sporting clubs, the larger churches and institutions such as headspace in my electorate. I will be supporting them very strongly, as much as I possibly can, because I think that when you have strong institutions and strong civil society you have a strong harmonious community in total,” Mr Tudge said.
“They are my priorities for this term. If I can achieve some of those things then I think we will have made a great contribution to the community.”
