Community Infrastructure

I will always fight for better community infrastructure, because I believe it benefits the entire community. It helps keep people active and engaged and keep kids off the street and mentored by older people.

First stage upgrades to Quarry Reserve in Upper Gully are now complete! This is a hidden gem in Knox and worth a visit.
