Jobs fo­cus for MLA’s maiden speech

Wanneroo Times - - Street Watch -

JOONDALUP MLA Emily Hamil­ton de­liv­ered her in­au­gu­ral speech to the 40th Par­lia­ment of WA last month.

Watch­ing on were her chil­dren Mya and Ryan, as well as fam­ily and sup­port­ers in the pub­lic gallery.

One of the fo­cal points of Ms Hamil­ton’s speech was the need for the de­vel­op­ment of lo­cal projects to cre­ate jobs.

She said this in­cluded con­tin­u­ing the growth and de­vel­op­ment of Joondalup as a thriv­ing sec­ond CBD by in­vest­ing in ed­u­ca­tion, health and com­mu­nity in­fra­struc­ture.

“We need lo­cal, se­cure and sus­tain­able jobs, mean­ing­ful paths to em­ploy­ment for our young peo­ple, af­ford­able and ac­ces­si­ble train­ing and ap­pren­tice­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties, qual­ity health­care close to home and in­vest­ment in our lo­cal schools,” she said.

“It was very clear the peo­ple of Joondalup wanted to see progress on the Ocean Reef Ma­rina de­vel­op­ment.

“It has over­whelm­ing pub­lic sup­port and lo­cal res­i­dents have a keen in­ter­est in see­ing con­struc­tion be­gin.”
