A significant supplier of forklifts and bobcats based in Bradfield, employing nearly 500 people, is seriously concerned about the impact on its business by the Rudd government’s mining tax, Paul Fletcher, Federal Member for Bradfield told Parliament today.

“The NSW Labor Government has added another chapter to the shameful story of undemocratic planning decisions in Ku-ring-gai with the approval by Planning Minister Tony Kelly of the Ku-ring-gai Town Centres Plan,” Paul Fletcher, Federal Member for Bradfield said today.

"The Rudd Government’s decision to expel an Israeli diplomat is a gross overreaction," Paul Fletcher MP, Federal Member for Bradfield said today.

"The state of Israel is the only genuine multiparty democracy in the Middle East.

"The ties of friendship and of shared values, between Australia and Israel, are longstanding.

The Federal Member for Bradfield, Paul Fletcher will be handed the Hornsby Hospital petition on Tuesday 18 May 2010 at 2pm.

This petition contains over 30,000 signatures from concerned residents of Hornsby and surrounding areas and calls for urgent improvements to the physical facilities at the hospital.

Bradfield is the fourth highest taxed electorate in Australia – and Labor’s latest budget offers no relief in sight for the hard pressed taxpayers of Bradfield.

Instead, Labor has just kept going with its reckless spending spree.

Big Spending, Big Taxing Labor Bites Bradfield

“Bradfield is the fourth highest taxed electorate in Australia – and Labor’s latest budget offers no relief in sight for the hard pressed taxpayers of Bradfield,” said Federal Member for Bradfield Paul Fletcher.

“Instead, Labor has just kept going with its reckless spending spree.

“They are budgeting to spend a staggering $352 billion in 2010-11.  That is almost one hundred billion dollars more than in the last full year of the Howard Government.

Member for Bradfield, Paul Fletcher, today paid tribute to all the volunteers throughout the North Shore for their outstanding contribution to Australian society as part of National Volunteer Week, which runs from 10 to 16 May. 

“Volunteers are the backbone of many organisations and our communities would not be the same without them,” Mr Fletcher said.

Paul joins the Graffiti Hit Squad

Paul joined Turramurra Rotary's Graffiti Hit Squad on Saturday May 1 and Sunday May 2 to help fight graffiti in Bradfield.

"I joined the Rotary crew as we worked to scrub away graffiti in Turramurra," Mr Fletcher said.

I support the protection of the diverse and unique marine environment of the Coral Sea.  However the Coalition holds deep reservations about how the Government has acted on this issue, particularly given local concerns about a lack of consultation on the initial listing.

The over-riding principle here is that a sensible balance continues between a sustainable ocean environment and the needs of those who live and work with it.  I am mindful of the rights of our fishing and tourism communities that work and rely on these activities for their very livelihoods. 

“The spirit of volunteering is alive and well in Ku-ring-gai”, Paul Fletcher, Federal Member for Bradfield, said at last week’s Community Service Awards ceremony organised by the Rotary Club of St Ives.

Five outstanding Ku-ring-gai volunteers were honoured at the ceremony: Elsje Osborne from the St Ives Netball Club; Jo Harris from the Historical Society of Ku-ring-gai; Rob and Pam Mayrick from Ku-ring-gai Meals on Wheels; and Harry Cramer from the State Emergency Service.
