Mobile Offices December

Tamara Smith Member for Ballina mobile office dates December

Can't make it to my Ballina office? Come for a chat at a mobile office this month. 

As your local member, I'm always keen to hear from local residents.

I know it's not always possible for everyone to get to my Ballina office during office hours so I'm running a series of mobile offices this month throughout the electorate.

Proud to see local students acting on climate change

Students planning to participate in a national school strike this Friday calling for emergency action on climate change should ignore the Prime Minister’s patronising speech on the matter, said Member for Ballina Tamara Smith.

“The idea that schools and students should have less activism - how incredibly out of touch is the Prime Minister to suggest that young people are not activists in their own right?” said Ms Smith.


Water Mining Meeting with Tamara Smith Member for Ballina

Media Release 22 November 2018

Member for Ballina Tamara Smith MP says the proposal by the NSW government to hold an inquiry into water mining in the Northern Rivers region is a pretense designed to fool residents into believing action is being taken.

“This inquiry is a smokescreen and it is very similar to what the Liberal National government did with Coal Seam Gas,” said Ms Smith.
