Our Group Members Meet Ed Husic, Federal Member of Chifley!

A few months ago, the Honorary Mr. Ed Husic, Federal Member for Chifley asked myself(as a President of Mount Druitt Commuters Improvement Group Inc.), if our group would like to meet him. This, I found made me feel proud of how we got to where we are today, not just  for myself, but  for every single member of our group and our community! For a Federal Member of Government to want to understand what we are doing, when the majority of our issues are locally related and result in changes from a State Government, this is really telling you something!

The general consensus from the members of the group was that Ed Husic wanted to 'hear' what the group was doing locally from the recent bus trip around our own Mount Druitt area, to lobbying for  improved bus services within the area, as specific details had been given to him. Comments raised were that he was fair and gave everyone a fair chance to speak and have their say.

Although Ed thought Mount Druitt had a Free Shuttle bus already in operation, he didn't realise it wasn't running but it is a proposed  Free Shuttle Bus route we are lobbying for Mount Druitt. He informed members that as a representative of the Australian Federal Government, he will be catching up with Member for Mount Druitt, Honorary Richard Amery to discuss these issues.

Wouldn't it be nice if all matters of all decisions came from Federal
