2007 Lismore Electorate Woman of the Year

Northern Rivers Echo 26 October 2006

2007 Lismore Electorate Woman of the Year

Nominations are now open for the 2007 Lismore Electorate Woman of the Year awards. The awards recognise the achievements and leadership of women in business and their local community.

As previous winners have shown, there are many in women in our local community whose contributions, successes and achievements encourage and inspire those around them. Honouring women for their contribution to our communities is an important way of building the confidence and pride of all women, and encourages other women and girls by publicly presenting role models

All nominees will be invited to a presentation function to announce the Lismore Electorate Woman of the Year, who will also be presented with an engraved silver goblet. An invitation will also be extended to the winner to attend the Premier's Reception, (alongside other winners from across NSW) where the NSW Woman of the Year will be announced.

Nominations forms are available from my Lismore Electorate Office. The closing date for nominations is Wednesday 22 November 2006.

Rehabilitation Unit

I appreciate the support I have received from the community regarding the Rehabilitation Unit. The outcome local representatives and Mayors have been trying to achieve in regard to this issue is the delivery of rightly deserved and greatly needed health services for regional residents. Please be assured I will continue to pursue this issue until an appropriate outcome is achieved.

Daylight Saving

Daylight Saving commences this weekend on Sunday 29 October 2006 at 2.00am when clocks are put forward one hour. It will continue until Sunday 25 March 2007 at 3.00am when clocks are put back one hour.
