On the 21st of September I was invited to a meeting of the Outer East Citizen’s Advocacy situated in Greenwood Avenue. The Outer East Citizen’s Advocacy provides tireless work in advancing the rights of people with disabilities and aims to allow these people to fully participate within society.
In providing this service the Outer East Citizen’s Advocacy fulfils a vital need, since while it is a little known fact, 14% of residents within our municipality are people with our disability. The services provided by the Outer East Citizen’s Advocacy in providing a voice for people with people with disabilities is truly commendable.
On the 26th of September I was invited to a policy announcement at Ringwood Station, made by the Victorian Opposition, in regard to the installation of security cameras at Ringwood Station. It is encouraging that at a state level we are seeing the safety concerns of public transport, as highlighted within our own Maroondah Integrated Transport Strategy, being address by our political parties.
