Community members have suggested several Sydney electorate residents for a 2018 Seniors Local Achievement Award that I’m pleased to support.
I will acknowledge the contributions of Mary Mortimer, Peter Devoy and Julie Bates. Mary brings residents together to build local community and organises numerous campaigns – she’s involved in nearly every group in Pyrmont. Peter has been a core member of Pyrmont Cares, repurposing unwanted furniture. Julie has been an advocate for sex worker rights and harm reduction for many years, now working with Touching Base, which brings people with disability and sex workers together. Congratulations all three.
