Council is delighted to welcome newly elected Federal Member for Dunkley, Ms Peta Murphy, following the May 2019 federal election.
As the first female Member for Dunkley, Frankston City Mayor Michael O’Reilly said “we look forward to seeing and supporting the positive impact Peta will undoubtedly make in empowering women, promoting equality and encouraging female participation in our local community.”
“Throughout her campaign Peta demonstrated a commitment to our community and we look forward to working with her to advance the many positive projects and services that are required by the Frankston City community.”
Frankston City Mayor also thanked outgoing Member Chris Crewther for his service from 2016-2019, saying “we have appreciated the time and effort Chris has contributed towards ensuring vital local community projects are included in the 2019-2020 Federal Budget or were to be funded if elected’.
The elected Morrison Federal Government committed to a number of projects within Frankston City, including:
- Expanding the Jubilee Park Indoor Stadium
- Car parking at Frankston, Kananook and Seaford Stations
- Electrifying the Stony Point rail line from Frankston
- A City Deal in the South East Melbourne region, including a catalyst development in Frankston City
“Council will continue advocating to the Victorian Government and Federal Government to ensure these and other vital projects proceed in order to propel Frankston City as the Lifestyle Capital of Victoria,” said the Mayor.
