I HEARD the Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock on radio the other morning stating that herself and Member for Kiama Gareth Ward are getting together a petition to put to the Minister for Health for more parking spaces around Shoalhaven Hospital.
If able to obtain 10,000 or more signatures the matter could be debated in parliament. Asked by the announcer whether this was just a “stunt” and possibly she could just walk down to the appropriate Minister’s office Mrs Hancock replied it was not and that she was there for her local constituents.
I would ask, if the local member wants to start up a petition then why hasn’t she started one for 24/7 policing in the Bay and Basin area?
Our member has advocated for a police station for almost seven years even suggesting we all read Hansard as to her requests on this matter. I don’t remember anything about starting a petition on this matter though.
To the Member for South Coast I say, as the announcer suggested, your idea for a petition is just a “stunt”. Perhaps after politics you might look for work blowing up those big balloons as you are certainly expelling a lot of hot air at present.
