Members Statement – Citizens of the Year

Feb 4, 2021 | News, Parliament

Mr BARTON (Eastern Metropolitan) (09:53): Today I would like to recognise some of the inspiring local residents in my region who have gone above and beyond in serving their community and their fellow citizens. Christine Ellis, Anupa Shah, David Winter, Yvonne Giltinan and Dr Elaine Ong have been rightly recognised by their local councils as citizens of the year for their generosity, passion, courage and the sense of justice that they demonstrate through their everyday lives. These incredible community members are the backbone of local organisations that support disadvantaged families, women fleeing domestic violence, people experiencing homelessness and many others. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to these individuals: your selflessness and your hard work does not go unnoticed
