Congratulations in order for Anthony Albanese, our local member for Grayndler, who is now settling in as the 31st Prime Minister of Australia. Anthony has been a loyal and supportive local member for us, visiting Addi Road often and pitching in himself to pack hampers during the Covid-19 lockdowns. He calls us “the heart and soul of the Inner West”. We’ve seen him here often – with and without the media. Opening our Public Schools Arts Festival; consulting with us about poverty and unemployment issues; backing our work at the Addi Road Food Relief Hub through bushfires, pandemic and floods; and bringing attention to inequality and “the working poor” during his recent election campaign with a press conference here. We look forward to your next visit Anthony – and to maintaining the good relationship with you across all those fields, from our food relief and social justice work through to our arts and culture and community activities. More than anything we appreciate you caring about what happens here and being an active part of it. No task too big; no act too small not to matter and be meaningful when it all adds up.
