Elizabeth Elenius

(Community Recognition Statement, March 16 2021, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)

On behalf of the Sydney electorate, I wish to put on record the thanks for the long term work and advocacy of Elizabeth Elenius of Pyrmont.

As an early resident in the newly redeveloped Jacksons Landing, Elizabeth has been a strong advocate for government and council to fulfil their roles providing the infrastructure that residents need – and has done this for more than two decades. She has been a driving force in local resident group Pyrmont Action and numerous consultative groups and bodies. Elizabeth reliably commits to assessing the numerous plans and strategies for the peninsula, and actively representing community concerns to decision makers. Elizabeth has strong focus on the environment, with involvements in the local Landcare group as well as broader campaign groups working to protect the natural world that sustains us. I nominated Elizabeth as the 2021 Sydney Electorate Woman of the Year to recognise her ongoing community work and advocacy, and to thank Elizabeth for her contribution to the Pyrmont community. She has made sure that residents' needs and concerns are always in front of decision makers.

Let's work together to celebrate and protect our great city!
