Working together to deliver for Casey

It was an honour and privilege to be returned as your federal representative at the recent election.

It’s truly exciting to be working in partnership with local community groups and our Council to deliver the important local projects that I pledged during the campaign.

Over the past few months, I have been able to announce some major projects for the residents of the outer east, Yarra Valley and the Dandenong Ranges which build on the many projects already completed.

Dirt roads are a real and everyday issue for thousands of people in the Casey electorate. That’s why in April, the Federal Budget included $300 million to seal unmade dirt roads in the Dandenongs and surrounding areas.

A $ 1 million federal funding contribution will also be provided for the construction of a new pavilion at the Mt Evelyn Recreation Reserve.

At Kimberley Reserve in Chirnside Park, $1 million will be provided for essential oval upgrades and associated works, and lighting upgrades.

A $1 million federal funding contribution will also be provided for the construction of a new pavilion at Mooroolbark Soccer Club at Esther Park.

The Morrison Government has announced it has contributed $10 million of federal funding for the Rivers and Ridges trails network.

This is a significant contribution for Stage 1 of the Rivers and Ridges trails network project and brings the total funding from the Federal Government to $15.3 million.

The Morrison Government will make a further investment to expand the CCTV security camera network throughout the Casey electorate.

$120,000 of federal funding has been provided for CCTV security cameras in Warburton, $149,000 for a network in Upwey and $115,000 for Wandin North.
