Following A Tough Few Years …

Buy Local This Christmas

Buy Local Christmas 2022 and go in the draw to win $1000! It’s easy, all you need to do is make a purchase at a local Scenic Rim business and write your name and phone number on the back of your receipt and drop it in a ‘Buy Local Christmas Box’ – located at participating businesses around the electorate and at my office. I started this initiative, together with Federal Member Scott Buchholz MP, to encourage the community to support local businesses following a tough few years of floods, bushfires, and COVID-19. My family will be doing our Christmas shopping locally this year and I urge everybody to do the same. 

Call 13 HOON 

I know that hooning is a big issue in some areas of the Scenic Rim. I have discussed the issue with local police in the past and relayed concerns from locals. There are penalties for hoons, including the confiscation of vehicles. Dangerous drivers are not just a danger to themselves, but also others on the road, pedestrians, and entire neighbourhoods for the disruption they cause to people’s lives.

It is important that if you notice hooning in your area to call 13 HOON (13 4666), Policelink (131 444) or fill out the online form at and report the incident with the make and model of car and registration number if you can see it. When complaints are made like this it can be recorded and can help our police to be allocated the correct resources (like more police vehicles, police personnel, or noise cameras) to deal with problems. We need more police resources in our region and every report of activity can help add to the case for more police.
