Northern Rivers Echo

Last week the Attorney General Gabrielle Upton and I had the pleasure of presenting Justice of the Peace Long Service Awards to Grahame Bonamy from Lismore for 50 years service.

JP’s provide an important & free service to the community. Undertaking this voluntarily for 50 years is something Grahame should be very proud of.

If you are interested in being a JP, go to to find out more details.

The Northern Rivers Youth Employment and Living Resume project are great initiatives of RED Inc.

Minister for Disability Services John Ajaka MLC & I had the opportunity to view a few of the Living Resume videos - they were very impressive. These videos really showcase the individuals’ personality, ambitions and skills.

There are many benefits to employing a person with a disability, so check out the website -
