Committee for Wyndham

I rise today to recognise a group in my electorate that has recently celebrated its 16th anniversary. The Committee for Wyndham is an incorporated, civic membership based group that works diligently for the betterment of the Wyndham and western Melbourne as a whole. In particular, I acknowledge the loyal and dedicated Peter Hudson and John Nicol, who have been with the committee since its inception, along with the long-serving Jan Goates. Today, led by Chris Potaris, the committee is dedicating itself to addressing the challenges that a region with rapid growth faces. Working with the local Wyndham council and state and federal governments, this group aims to ensure growth, jobs and sustainability in Wyndham are assured.

Last week I attended a function to which the committee had invited the Hon. Steve Bracks to speak. Steve highlighted the need for groups like the Committee for Wyndham to drive investment in our region and to ensure our skills and jobs are not lost and that we embrace opportunities that lie ahead of us. That is exactly what the committee for Wyndham does.

I congratulate the committee for its work over these 16 years and for some of the achievements that we have seen that are due to its hard work. I know that many in the community go to the Committee for Wyndham when they have issues so they feel need addressing, particularly issues around industry and jobs.
