Quotes attributable to Member for Whitlam Stephen Jones:
“The Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) program is supporting Shellharbour City Council to deliver this priority project which will have long-lasting benefits for our community.”
“Our population is growing, and so too is the demand for sporting fields. I’ve been told local membership numbers are rising, particularly among junior and female athletes. That’s why we’re investing more than $567,000 in federal funding towards this new football field here in Flinders.”
“The ongoing success of our local athletes and the likes of the Matilda’s at the FIFA Women's World Cup is proof investing in sporting facilities for the next generation is crucial.”
