Jenny Leong Recognises Community Groups Engaging in Local Democracy

Jenny Leong MP, Greens Member for Newtown has recognised the continuation local community groups make to local democracy by when they hold candidate forums in the lead up to elections.


Ms JENNY LEONG (Newtown) (12:59): I acknowledge REDWatch, the Alexandria Residents Action Group, Friends of Erskineville, Petersham Bowlo and Newtown Mission, who all held election forums in our local community to support and encourage engagement with the democratic system and hold parties and candidates to account. I thank all the volunteers who make our resident action groups the strong, active, engaged groups that they are, advocating for the interests of our local community. I look forward to continuing working with them to serve our community for years to come.
