Hornery to Hit the Ground Running When Parliament Resumes

Media Releases

With NSW Parliament set to resume this week, Ms Sonia Hornery MP, State Member for Wallsend, has reaffirmed her commitment to holding the Government to account on a number of issues in the Wallsend electorate.

Ms Hornery has already submitted a number of Questions on Notice to Government Ministers, in portfolio areas as diverse as Health, Emergency Services, Police and the privatisation of public assets.

Ms Hornery will also be debating a Notice of Motion later this week on the unprecedented cost and waste of public money on the Government’s advertising campaign banning greyhound racing. 

Quotes attributable to Member for Wallsend, Sonia Hornery

“I’m determined to hit the ground running when Parliament resumes this week, with Questions on Notice and Notices of Motion designed to hold the Government to account.

“I have spent the last few months speaking with and listening to the community, and have identified a number of policy areas I want to focus on in the coming year.”

“These include addressing the lack of a Police station and Police presence in Wallsend and Beresfield/Tarro, the continuing scourge of domestic violence, defending TAFE, pushing for a whole-of-government approach to the issue of affordable housing and advocating for an overhaul of public transport in the western suburbs of Newcastle.”

“We have schools in the Wallsend electorate that are in desperate need of maintenance, with one school needing more than $1million in work to bring it up to scratch and the Government needs to act on this immediately.”

“The Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange is something I am passionate about and I will continue to push for funding to complete this vitally important project.” 

“I am looking forward to the new Parliamentary year and for another opportunity to stand up for the Wallsend electorate.”
