Supporting Small Businesses in Kooyong

I enjoyed hearing from many small business owners in my electorate over the weekend, about the positive impact our Budget is already having on their businesses. Stopped in for some authentic Italian at Olio e Pane and then finished with a chat with Christina from artisan chocolatiers, Sisko Chocolate. Great to hear her plans to capitalise on the instant asset write-off. Highly recommend their salted caramel chocolates too.

Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program update

Today I hosted a lunch in my electorate office to thank local residents who have been involved in the Anzac Centenary Local Grants program.  The local grants committee which I chaired approved thirteen applications from local organisations and schools to hold commemorative events in our local community.  While many of the commemorations took place around Anzac Day many more are still taking place and will take place until 2018.  We were lucky enough to have students who visited Gallipoli at our lunch today – Callum Wearne from Camberwell Grammar School, Erin Donoghue from Genazzano and Megan Liew from Camberwell Girls Grammar School.  These impressive young people spoke of their individual Anzac journey sharing their experiences whilst in Gallipoli and some of the memories that they said they will cherish forever.  I am pictured below with students Tess Nolan and Alexandra Suddick who are Boroondara Literary Award winners having written poems about the Anzacs and students Erin Donoghue, Callum Wearne and Megan Liew who visited Gallipoli. 

Talking Small Business with Toscano's Kew

I was in Kew this afternoon to visit the family run fruit and vegetable business, Toscano’s and to meet with brothers Damian and Patrick Toscano. It was a good opportunity to talk small business and the budget with these inspiring young third generation businessmen.

Official Ground Breaking Ceremony at the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School

On 22 May, it was a privilege to attend and speak at the official ground breaking ceremony at the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School. MITS will give remote Indigenous students the opportunity to receive a quality education while also addressing the particular challenges of transitioning from small communities to a big city. This initiative is the brainchild of educators Liz and Rick Tudor, who have worked very closely with remote Indigenous communities over a number of decades to improve the educational outcomes for Indigenous students. Partly funded by the Federal Government, its partner schools and private benefactors, the MITS model will no doubt be extremely beneficial as we work towards closing the gap. 

Breakfast with Alan Tudge MP in Aston

It was a pleasure to join the Member for Aston, Alan Tudge MP, at a post Budget breakfast in his electorate. A great opportunity to discuss the Government’s 2015-16 Budget measures in detail and how they will make a real difference for small businesses and families in Aston. As Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, Alan is to be commended for his fantastic work, not just in representing the people of Aston, but for looking at real and meaningful ways of improving outcomes for Indigenous Australians across the country. 

Talking Budget with Small Business around Australia

This week I met with small businesses and locals across Brisbane and Western Sydney to talk about the 2015-16 Budget, the economy, and financial services. I was warmly hosted by Jane Prentice MP, in Brisbane, and in Western Sydney by Alex Hawke MP, Craig Kelly MP, Craig Laundy MP and Russell Matheson MP, all of whom are strong voices for the people and businesses of their electorates. From Castle Hill to Campbelltown, Baulkham Hills to Burwood, I had an opportunity to hear firsthand how the Budget is benefiting small businesses – be they local retailers, cafés, hairdressers, or carpenters. I am pictured here shopping local with Jane Prentice MP, onsite with tradies with Russell Matheson MP, speaking with local business leaders with Alex Hawke MP, at Panania Diggers with Craig Kelly MP, and at a small business forum with Craig Laundy MP.

Breakfast with Michael Sukkar MP in Deakin

On 19 May, I joined Michael Sukkar MP, Member for Deakin, to address guests at a breakfast in Deakin. I addressed the group on measures in the 2015-16 Budget and answered questions on the state of the Australian economy and the Government’s Budget priorities. Michael is a strong local voice for the Deakin community in Canberra, including his support for local small business and his strong advocacy for the construction of the East West Link in Victoria. I am pictured here with Michael and local students at the breakfast.

Australian American Youth Dialogue participants visit Parliament House

It was a pleasure to meet with the group of successful young Australians who are participating in the 2015 Australian American Leadership Dialogue during their visit to Parliament House on 14 May. The AALD brings together the brightest young leaders in government, enterprise, media, education and the community from both countries with the aim of having frank and robust discussions around the Australian American bilateral partnership. I am pictured here with the young Australians who will be our nation’s voice in this year’s dialogue

Xavier Writers' Tour visits Parliament House

It was fantastic to catch up with the group of Year 10 students from Xavier College in Kew who were visiting Parliament House as part of the school’s Canberra Writers' Tour on 13 May. This trip offers students the opportunity to enrich their understanding of Australian culture and history while also finessing their writing skills. What better time to visit Canberra and gain a true sense for Australian political life than during Budget week! Congratulations to the students who were selected to take part in this valuable initiative. I am pictured here with the writers’ tour group and leading teachers, Mr Nick Franich and Mr Nick Hughes. 

Creswick Mills and Liz Davenport Creative Collaboration

On 8 May I visited Creswick Woollen Mills in Hawthorn to launch their new collaboration with Australian fashion pioneer Liz Davenport. Their collaboration is a tribute to the strength of the CWM and Davenport brands, with both brands now selling their clothing and woollen products from CWM stores in Victoria and online. Creswick, which is a third generation business operating Australia’s only coloured woollen mill, produces and sells beautiful woollen blankets and knitwear throughout Australia and globally. I am pictured here with Sharon Herszfeld, Retail Director, Creswick Woollen Mills, Elizabeth Herszfeld, Boaz Herszfeld, Executive Director, Creswick Woollen Mills and Liz Davenport.
