Out and about with Andrew – week ending 4 September 2016

It was back to parliament last week where I was honoured to be present when my colleague Ros Bates MP tabled the 30,000 strong petition from my constituent Alicia Duvall to introduce Mason’s Law honouring Mason Jet Lee and seeking positive change to protect our most vulnerable kids.

Sports freaks like me were thrilled to have a visit from the Brisbane Heat at Parliament House.  Unfortunately it looks like I won’t be successful in winning a signed Brisbane Heat cricket bat that I was hoping to donate in the Glass House electorate! The aim was to get the most facebook likes by 5pm today and the competition has been fierce!  Thanks to everyone who liked and shared my post.

The people of Glasshouse Mountains have never felt safer now the traffic lights are up and running at both the Reed Street and Bowen Road intersections on Steve Irwin Way.   This really is a great win for the people of Glasshouse. They deserve to be very proud of their efforts in fighting for these vital improvements and I’m so pleased I’ve been able to play my part as their local MP.

I had the pleasure on Friday of meeting San Training Centre’s Reuben Tidy who picked up bronze at the National Taekwondo Championships held in Bendigo, Victoria last weekend. Reuben was the beneficiary of one of my Local Heroes Grants to assist with the costs associated in him competing.  Great job Reuben!

Strawbfest at the Chevallum State School was as action packed and successful as ever on Friday night.  Always a great event and the best part was I got to enjoy it with my family.

My week finished at the Maleny Showgrounds which was invaded by 650 cyclists and their support teams as part of Bicycle Queensland’s Adventure Tour from Woodford to Hervey Bay. It was great to join them for dinner and wish them well for their journey down the hill to Kenilworth.
