White Rock residents have the opportunity to meet their elected local and state representatives at a series of street stalls to be held in the suburb.
State Member for Mulgrave Curtis Pitt and Cairns Regional Council Division three Councillor Rob Pyne will be available once a month to discuss issues face to face with residents.
Mr Pitt said it was important for elected representatives to make themselves available in the community.
“The best way to find out what needs to be done in the community is to get out and meet people,” Mr Pitt said.
“Councillor Pyne and I will be available outside the White Rock shops one afternoon each month from 3.30 to 5.30pm to discuss any state or local government issues residents wish to raise.
“No appointment is necessary. We’re happy for people to just turn up and have a chat and Rob and I will see what we can do.
“Community feedback is essential if we are to effectively represent our constituents,” Mr Pitt said.
Cr Pyne said Curtis is proving to be a consistent and considered decision maker and somebody who is not afraid to stick up for his local area.
“Working together Curtis and I have had a lot of wins for the area and hopefully through the street stalls will be able to fix even more problems,” Cr Pyne said.
Street stalls will be held:
- Thursday April 22
- Thursday May 13
- Thursday June 17
- Thursday August 26
- Thursday September 30
- Thursday October 21
- Thursday November 18
