Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Brad Box­all

It’s been a week of highs and lows for the Mt Druitt area. In light of SBS’s Strug­gle St ev­ery­one could for­give us for be­ing scep­ti­cal of re­al­ity TV film­ing in the area, but when a fa­ther-and-daugh­ter duo took out the grand fi­nal of Chan­nel 7’s House Rules they did us all proud. How fan­tas­tic to have Steve and Tiana Fal­zon rep­re­sent the strength and tenac­ity that make up the fab­ric of our area. How­ever, the prob­lems so many fam­i­lies face can­not be ig­nored, and these were high­lighted in a re­port that found Mt Druitt was worse off af­ter the Fed­eral Bud­get than any other sub­urb in Aus­tralia. It’s time for politi­cians to com­mit to achiev­ing real change in ar­eas that have been ig­nored for too long.
