>Footpaths a Concern for Senior Residents in Innaloo

Elizabeth Re was called upon by local residents in Innaloo to push the barrow for better footpaths in the area.

“Often presenting a real health risk to seniors, a fall can be life threatening to many and negatively affect the quality of life of our seniors, as they are more prone to breaking limbs,” says Elizabeth.

“I believe it is our responsibility as a Council to ensure the safest possible community for all of our residents.”

Elizabeth Re is concerned about the welfare of Seniors in the community and is aware of the needs of an ageing population.

In her capacity as a Justice of the Peace, Elizabeth Re is often called upon to sign legal documents, as was the case recently when she was out shopping and received a phone call asking if she could urgently sign some application forms.
Chris, an immigrant to Australia, approached Elizabeth to witness his Australian Citizenship application.

Chris is hoping to become an Australian Citizen on Australia Day, 2011.

Elizabeth dutifully checked his paperwork and signed his photos and application forms on the spot.

>Families are Important

Visiting one of the reserves in Dianella, Elizabeth was approached by Andrew Solich, a local father who was out with his children enjoying the play equipment at the local reserve.

“I’m just wondering if there is anything the Council can do about providing some shade at the playground,” asked Andrew.  “A lot of the local kids come down to this park to play but there really isn’t any shade over the play equipment which means that the equipment can be too hot to play on in summer and too wet in winter.  Just seems a shame that the kids can’t play here all year round and enjoy the equipment.”

Elizabeth explained to Mr Solich that it depends on where the equipment is located as to whether or not it would qualify for the shade sails to be added to the equipment.

Having raised two boys herself, Elizabeth appreciates that parents have a tough job on their hands, especially teaching children the value of public space, of community service and how to share public space harmoniously.

Elizabeth also made an impression on 12 year old, Sarah Solich, as she discussed with her about waste management.

“We need to encourage our young people to be proactive in our communities,” says Elizabeth.  “Young people have a lot to give and just need us to guide them.”

>Supporting Small Business in Trigg

Elizabeth Re and Adam Zenick

Supporting Small Business

Small Business are always getting a raw deal and in her role as a Health Officer for the Western Australian government, Elizabeth has seen more than her fair share of the delays that can occur due to red tape.

Whilst shopping at Trigg, Elizabeth called past one of the restaurants at the Trigg Shopping Centre and had a quick chat with Adam Zenick.

“There’s too much red tape for small businesses,” said Adam.  “It’s hard enough finding good staff and making a living without the bureaucratic red tape. I like to give the young kids a go in my business, so fair go Council.”

Elizabeth reassured Adam that she is doing her best to support the small businesses in the City of Stirling.

“Lucky we’ve got you on Council, Liz,” said Adam.

Elizabeth supports small businesses as they are vital for our sustainable future and diverse lifestyle, as they suit local people, part timers, parents and give the youth of today not only work and monetary skills but also the understanding of being part of the business family and how to function in a business team work environment.

Elizabeth Re is aware of the struggle most small business owners have to stay in business and is willing to go the extra mile to support them.

>Out and about in Scarborough

Elizabeth Re with Allen & Eileen Hopkins

On a trip down to Scarborough Beach, Elizabeth Re was stopped by a local couple, Allen & Eileen Hopkins who wanted to know what was happening with the latest building developments at Scarborough Beach.

Allen & Eileen have been very happily married for over 53 years, walk every day down at Scarborough Beach and have lived for many years in the area.  They are concerned about the building developments and the high rise units that are planned for the area directly opposite the ampitheatre.

There is currently quite a bit of council work taking place in the area, with council responding to the request for better footpaths.  So new footpaths are being laid, which has caused quite a bit of disruption to the carparks.  Local residents appreciate the new footpaths but are a little frustrated by all the changes taking place.

“You’re not going to let them build more high rise and spoil our beach are you?” asked Eileen seriously.

“We’ve been happily married for over 53 years and love coming to Scarborough Beach,” commented Allen.

Assuring them both that she would do all in her power to ensure the voice of the people is represented, the couple seemed reassured to know there is someone on Council who listens to the hearts of the people.

Elizabeth Re is committed to being the voice of the people on the issue of property development in the Stirling region.
