Thrilled to join Brisbane's new Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner as he was officially sworn in at Brisbane City Hall.
Delighted to attend the All Stars Senior Awards Night at the Kedron-Wavell RSL.
What a fantastic morning at the Seniors Expo hosted by Trevor Evans MP. It was a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful community event & I look forward to attending Trevor's 3rd Seniors Expo next year.
Was lovely to be joined by Cr Vicki Howard, Cr David McLachlan, Councillor Fiona Hammond, Senator James McGrath & Brad Carswell - LNP for Lilley. Thanks to OzHarvest Brisbane, ChaplainWatch & many more community groups for supporting this great expo.
At the Aviation Open Day, Federal Member Trevor Evans MP announced that Aviation High has been selected as the P-Tech (Pathways to Technology) pilot site in Brisbane. Great work by Trevor Evans MP and congratulations to Aviation High!
An absolute pleasure to meet and congratulate the 2019 leaders of Hendra State School.
The vacant State Government owned land at the corner of Le Geyt St and Gennon Street in Windsor has recently been marked with survey pegs. There are concerns that this flood prone land will be sold for a housing development. Councillor David McLachlan (Hamilton Ward) and I think this land should be transformed into a park or recreational area for the wider community to enjoy.
Let us both know how you think this land could be better used, and what it should look like by filling out the quick survey.

What happened in Parliament
While it seems funny, it was no laughing matter when Labor guillotined the debate on the important Economic Development Legislation. You won't believe how long I was given to speak on this Bill - watch the video to find out!
Night works and temporary traffic changes – Harbour Road to Theodore Street, Hamilton
From mid-April until late June 2019, night works will be carried out intermittently on Kingsford Smith Drive between Harbour Road and Theodore Street, Hamilton.
These night works will allow the project to complete construction east of Harbour Road by mid-2019. Once these works are complete, Kingsford Smith Drive will open to three lanes of traffic in each direction between Harbour Road and Theodore Street, Hamilton.
Works will include:
removing the concrete barriers in the centre median with a small crane
installing a section of stormwater drainage pipes with road saws, jackhammers, excavators and trucks
cutting vehicle detector loops into the asphalt with road saws
removing the existing top layer of asphalt with a profiler and trucks
placing the final top layer of asphalt with asphalt paving machines, trucks and rollers
permanent line marking of the new road alignment with a line marking vehicle.
Residents on Kingsford Smith Drive and local streets may be able to see and hear this work from their property. In addition, asphalting works can produce a minor chemical odour.
These works will involve lane closures on Kingsford Smith Drive, and temporary traffic changes including the temporary closures of side roads in mid-May. Each side road will be closed for one night shift (7pm to 5am). These traffic changes are intended to occur in May 2019 in numerical order as outlined below. Traffic will be detoured around the closures with traffic controllers and signage to assist motorists. Click on the map below for details.
These works will also involve temporary driveway restrictions for properties with direct access to Kingsford Smith Drive. Impacted properties will be notified directly ahead of these works.
Pedestrian access will be maintained through the work site at all times.
In the event of wet weather or unforeseen circumstances, these works may be extended.
