The Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, was in Northam on Wednesday, 18 November 2015, as part of his regular Coffee with Christian program.
With over 30 people in attendance at the Rivers Edge Café, Mr Porter was able to answer concerns and discuss issues that local residents has on a broad range of subjects including:
• changes to the disability support pension and age pension;
• same sex marriage;
• the NDIS;
• local infrastructure and development; including an upgrade of Toodyay Road;
• Yongah Hill Detention Centre; and
• availability of child care.
“There was a solid turn out to the event from the Northam 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.”
