I would like to congratulate the former Member for Lalor, Barry Jones for his Queens Birthday Honour in receiving the Campion of the Order of Australia. I would also like to congratulate Seabrook resident, John Ballestrino for his award, Member of the Order of Australia.
It’s great to see those who make a significant contribution to our community being recognised. We have a fantastic local community with some very worthy residents.
However, it is disappointing that so few locals are recognised through National awards like these. It’s particularly disappointing how few women are recognised.
I know our community has many who make a vital contribution in their line of work or as volunteers, I have seen locals recognised at the local level, through Wyndham Council and by the former Member for Lalor, Julia Gillard’s Above and Beyond awards. There is only one thing our community lacks, a culture of nomination for National Awards.
I am determined to turn that around. I’m making the call to nominate locals. If you know of someone who does seems deserving, please consider nominating them for an award.
These nominations are sometimes time consuming but are usually not difficult once you have gathered the necessary information. If you would like assistance to make a nomination please do not hesitate to contact my office for assistance.
Let’s change our culture and make nominating worthy community members for their exceptional service our business.
