Michael Parris, Newcastle Herald (8/5/2018).

"The fate of sensitive koala habitat at Mambo Wetlands in Port Stephens is still in the hands of the NSW Department of Planning despite the government unveiling a $45 million koala strategy last weekend."

Funding for Port Stephens Koalas is welcome news, but there's little point to a sanctuary if we don't also preserve critical koala habitat. The Berejiklian government must BUY BACK MAMBO WETLANDS!

Matt Carr, Newcastle Herald (16/04/2018).

"Confusion over whether Newcastle and its suburbs are classified as metropolitan or regional is creating an uneven playing field for sports funding within the region, Shadow Minister for the Hunter Kate Washington claims."

Luke Foley, Newcastle Herald (12/4/2018).

"As we now know, when it privatised the ports of Botany, Kembla and Newcastle the government entered into secret deals designed to prevent Newcastle from ever competing with Botany."

Kate Washington MP, Newcastle Herald (12/4/2018).

"And so the fight continues, to make the Premier and her Minister for Disability Services understand that there will always be a need for independent advice and advocacy for people with disabilities in NSW."

Ian Kirkwood, Newcastle Herald (10/4/2018).

"The water supply of Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest could have been impacted by 16 kilometres of allegedly unauthorised drainage works dug around a 2400-hectare property owned by a wealthy Sydney developer, MidCoast Council and Port Stephens MP Kate Washington have alleged."

"Greater access to health services on the Tomaree Peninsula and an outcome for residents affected by the Williamtown contamination are just two of Kate Washington’s areas of focus as she enters her fourth year as the state member for Port Stephens."

Earlier this week, I joined people with disabilities, their families and advocates in Queanbeyan, at a rally to keep disability advocacy services funded.

Sadly, the Berejiklian/Barilaro government is proceeding with its planned cuts, in the misguided belief that the NDIS will solve everything.

Newcastle Herald (25/3/2018).

"A NSW Labor government would use $300 million from the Berejiklian government’s Sydney stadium splurge to provide air-conditioning  to hundreds of public schools, the Opposition announced."

March 22, 2018

Nick Bielby, Newcastle Herald (23/3/2018).

"The NSW government stands accused of backflipping on a $70 million last-minute election promise to duplicate the infamous Nelson Bay Road after the release of a "sensitive" document that revealed only a small fraction of the promised funding would be spent before voters return to the polls."
