Dickson Citizen of the Year: Colin ‘Col’ Chandler

A Message from Peter 

Best of luck to all the students back at school for the year, whether you’re starting Prep  or heading into Year 12, I wish you all the best for the year ahead and encourage you to make the most of opportunities that come your way. 

It is an exciting time for our local area. We have just had the official sod-turning at the Samford Community Hub and the new university at Petrie will be officially opened in the next few days. 

Seeing these projects become a reality will be a great reward for all the planning, preparation and hard work from so many in our community. It is very exciting. 

I’d like to say a very special thank you to all the members of the Rural Fire Service in our community who gave up time over December and January to travel down south and fight the bushfires. We appreciate you and all that you do. Thank you.  

I am here to serve and assist you, if there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.  

– Peter 

Making the Hills District Even Better 

Recently I worked with local Councillor for Division 10 Matt Constance on delivering the All-Abilities Playground at Leslie Patrick Park in Arana Hills. The jointly funded park has been open for several months now and the feedback has been fantastic. 

I’d like to work with you and our other local representatives on more projects to make our community even better – what would you like to see in our local area? 

Cancelling Visas of Foreign Criminals 

I’m working hard to keep our community and our country safe as Minister for Home Affairs. Our border protection policies are working and we are maker our community safer by cancelling the visas of foreign criminals. 

Since December 2014, we’ve cancelled the visas of more than 5,000 foreign criminals. This includes cancelling visas of 1170 thugs convicted of grievous bodily harm, 452 convicted paedophiles and child sex offenders, 852 drug dealers and drug traffickers, 714 thieves and armed robbers, 220 rapists and sex offenders, 93 murders and 547 other violent criminals. 

Our community will be far safer without these foreign criminals in our country.

I want to know what’s important to you.  I’m working hard to make our community even better but I can’t do it on my own. I need your help to make sure we get the priorities right for our community.
