This morning I announced that I would work with Council and our community to make sure Rocket Park and other parks in The Entrance would be protected from removal.

I am concerned that some parks, like Rocket Park, may be removed without replacement under a consolidation by Central Coast Council.

A lot of our local parks need repair or alterations but I will not support simply removing local park equipment without replacement.

If you believe we should protect local icons like Rocket Park please sign my petition here

Under a Daley Labor Government, we will refund ๐Ÿ’ต Brandonโ€™s ticket price if his train is delayed by more than 30 minutes โฐ
