The satellite city concept has created a national capital of micro-economies. If Canberra is to continue to grow and thrive, it’s important that each of these micro-economies continues to prosper.
On 20th June I tabled in Parliament a petition for the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs to stay in Tuggeranong.
Public service jobs based in Tuggeranong are the backbone of the local economy. Moving these jobs out of Tuggeranong would have a huge impact on small businesses and services in the area.
I look forward to keeping you updated on the progress of this petition.
