Latest news from Jamie Parker MP

Welcome to our new and improved electorate newsletter!

Read about our success in defending the Glebe Youth Service from eviction – this month we threw a party to welcome them home. We continue our campaign to introduce student concessions on light rail, protect NSW from Coal Seam Gas mining, support TAFE and protect it from more cuts, and save Sydney's nightlife. You can also get the latest updates on developments in Leichhardt (the Kolotex/Labelcraft sites) and Glebe/Forest Lodge (Harold Park).

I’m often out in the electorate visiting constituents, talking to local business owners and enjoying our high streets - if you see me out and about please stop and say hi!

As always, I’m keen to hear your feedback so please reply to this email and let me know what you think.

Best wishes,
