Having lived in Western Sydney for more than 40 years, Edmond is proud to call our community his home. He went to school locally and is raising his family in the area. Having served on Blacktown City Council for 13 years, and as the local State Member for the last Parliamentary term, Edmond understands our community and the pressures residents face every day.
Firstly serving as a local Blacktown City Councillor, Edmond has a strong record of standing up for our community and fighting for much need services.
As the current Member for Mount Druitt, Edmond has been proud to represent the Mount Druitt community and has worked hard to deliver on the return of services to the Mount Druitt Hospital, with the restoration of emergency surgery, the opening of the new Dialysis Centre and the installation of a licensed MRI Machine.
Edmond has also successfully campaigned for the upgrade of Rooty Hill Railway Station, which includes the installation of four new lifts, a multi-storey commuter car park, a family accessible toilet, a new pedestrian footbridge and stairs, bike racks, an improved bus shelter as well as upgrades to CCTV and lighting. This upgrade has commenced in early 2019 and is well under way.
Construction has commenced on the new $25 million Mount Druitt Police Station, and this is expected to be completed by April next year, the area will also gain an extra 15 more Police Officers.
However; there is so much more to do and Edmond will continue to work hard for his community to acquire further services and the infrastructure that Mount Druitt deserves.
The Liberals are taking Western Sydney for granted, they have implemented an unfair toll on residents of Western Sydney and have slashed funding from schools and TAFE. The Liberals have ignored the need for the much needed expansion of the Francis Road Overpass at Rooty Hill. With your support Edmond will fight for a better deal for Mount Druitt.
