Julie Bishop visits Kooyong

It was wonderful to have Julie Bishop in Kooyong to formally open my campaign. During the Foreign Minister's visit we announced that the Turnbull Government will provide $300,000 to Servants Community Housing to help establish a women's facility. We also went on a street walk in Hawthorn where we dropped into a number of small businesses including Panache Flowers, Rose Street Trading and 2XU.

$300,000 commitment for women's support services in Kooyong

On 31 May I was proud to announce that a re-elected Turnbull Government will provide $300,000 to Servants Community Housing to help establish a new, high quality housing facility for ten or more women in our community.

Servants has cared for some of the local community’s most vulnerable members for 30 years. Through this new facility, women in need will be provided affordable, private and secure accommodation, and support including meals and amenities.

The facility will be available to women who are subject to domestic violence. The Coalition has invested $100 million in new funding for domestic violence measures. This is in addition to our $100 million Women’s Safety Package, announced in September 2015. 

I have been honoured to support Servants in the invaluable work they do in our community for many years. In 2012, I established the Kooyong Christmas Giving Tree, which has collected thousands of dollars in money and in-kind donations to extend the festivity of the Christmas season to Servants’ residents. I was delighted to have Julie Bishop at the announcement and we are pictured here with the state member for Hawthorn, John Pesutto, Cr Jim Parke, Mayor of Boroondara, Servants Chairman, Warren Clark and CEO Matt Maudlin, servants residents, Cr Judith Voce and Georgie Crozier MLC. You can read the full media release here

Visit to Townsville

On 30 May 2016, I was delighted to visit Townsville with Ewen Jones MP, the Member for Herbert. We were also joined by Senator the Hon Ian Macdonald, Senator for Queensland, and Jonathan Pavetto, the LNP’s Candidate for Kennedy. We first met with representatives of the North Queensland Bio-Energy Corporation, an innovative company planning to construct a world leading power generation facility in Ingham, North Queensland. I then delivered an address to local business leaders on the Government’s plan for northern Australia, and took questions with Ewen on a range of local and national issues. Ewen then took me to meet with local graziers at Hogan & McHugh Livestock, where we heard about regional water priorities and discussed the Government’s recent major water announcement for Queensland. We also visited Rockfield Technologies, an impressive high tech engineering consulting firm working on major projects across the country from Townsville.

Cheering for the mighty Blues

It was exciting to be at the Sir Doug Nicholls Indigenous Round on 29 May and watch the mighty Blues defeat the Cats for the first time since 2010! The game was also very special because I got to meet Sir Doug's daughter Pam as well as Carlton great, Syd Jackson.  Also pictured here are Geelong President Colin Carter and Carlton President Mark LoGuidice.

Servants Community Housing 30th birthday

It was great to catch up with Servants Community Housing Inc CEO, Matt Maudlin and his team and many well wishers on 28 May for Servants' 30th birthday celebrations. Servants  has cared for some of the Kooyong community’s most vulnerable members for 30 years, from its base in Hawthorn and more recently from its two facilities in Kew. I have been honoured to support Servants in the invaluable work they do in our community for many years. In 2012, I established the Kooyong Christmas Giving Tree, which has collected thousands of dollars in money and in-kind donations to extend the festivity of the Christmas season to Servants’ residents.

Saturday Sport in Kew and Camberwell

Like many Kooyong constituents, Josh spent Saturday afternoon attending local community sporting events.  Being the proud patron of the Old Xaverians Soccer Club, it was good to see a strong turnout Club's Family and Sponsor Day.  Well done to Adrian Gervasoni and his committee on a great event at Hay's Paddock. Next stop was to the Camberwell Hockey Club, where a large group were assembled to watch both men's and women's matches on the hockey pitch. Congratulations to John Unkles and his committee on the success of the club. 

Another exciting day out and about in Kooyong

Today it was great to join a number of local Liberals on a street walk and meet local residents at the Camberwell Market and the Camberwell Junction shopping precinct and the historically significant Maling Road in Canterbury.  During my visit to Camberwell I dropped into Grill'd and bought a hamburger to participate in a great initiative which sees $5 from every Grill'd burger sold go to Camcare to support their work in the local community.

Annual Old Scotch Collegians Dinner

On 27 May, I attended the Old Scotch Collegians Association Annual Dinner in Hawthorn. 360 Old Boys and friends of Scotch College attended the dinner. The evening featured school songs, a presentation by the Principal, Mr Tom Batty, and an address by the Governor of Victoria, Her Excellency the Hon Linda Dessau AM – reflecting on her appointment as Victoria’s first female Governor. 

Visit to Koonung Secondary College

It great to visit Koonung Secondary College in Mont Albert North, joined by Liberal candidate for Chisholm, Julia Banks.

Julia and I met with student leaders, including Koonung’s school captains and co-chairs of the student representative council. The students shared their views about the upcoming election and shared their aspirations for tertiary education and their future careers.

We also toured the site of the school's exciting new science and food technology classrooms, led by Principal Peter Wright.

Celebrating Asaleo Care's investment in local manufacturing

It was an honour to speak at an event to mark Asaleo Care's recent $65 million investment in upgrading its advanced manufacturing centre in Box Hill. Asaleo Care is a leading personal care and hygiene company, with a portfolio of landmark brands including Sorbent, Handee and Libra.

Asaleo Care's Box Hill site has been manufacturing products locally since the early 1960s. The plant's recent multi-million dollar capital upgrade has increased capacity and reduced the cost base of operations through innovative product flow, new machinery and reduced labour requirements.

I was taken on a tour of this impressive facility, joined by federal Liberal candidate for Chisholm, Julia Banks, State Member Burwood, Graham Watt MP and Mayor of Whitehorse, Cr Philip Daw, before addressing management and employees of Asaleo.
