As we see off the challenges again thrown at us this year, I want to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and safe holiday season.

With travel restrictions finally easing, it’s been great to get back across my electorate over the last month or so – and equally exciting seeing tourists and travellers out and about along the border.

Where you can locally shop, stop, visit or stay…please do, as it benefits all of us.

While my electorate office will be closed between Christmas & New Year, I’ll be on-call for any critical issues or emergencies during this time.

Into the new year, my government remains focussed on suppressing the virus and supply of vaccine, together with the support needed to boost this region’s economy and delivering the essential services we rely on.

Stay safe, and here’s to a better, brighter 2022!
