The Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, was in Quinns Rocks on Thursday, 10 December 2015, as part of his regular Coffee with Christian program.
With over 30 people in attendance at the Hardware Cafe, Mr Porter was able to answer concerns and discuss issues that local residents has on a broad range of subjects including:
social services expenditure;
the healthy welfare card;
crude oil stocks;
unlawful maritime arrivals;
betting and gambling advertisements;
local infrastructure and development;
Syrian refugees; and
natural gas and renewable energy.
“There was a solid turn out to the event from the Quinns Rocks community and we enjoyed some robust discussions on a variety of topics,” Mr Porter said.
“I find that making myself available to the community through the Coffee with Christian program as often as I can provides me with a great resource to represent the views of our community in Canberra.
“It also provides a relaxed way for people to come and have a casual coffee and a chat with me about the issues that really matter to them and I encourage people to come along to one of my upcoming events.”
