Reps Unite to Hear from Small Business at Afternoon Tea
(L to R): Alice Ruhe, Steven Huang, Elizabeth Fairon, Joe Kelly MP, Corinne McMillan MP, Graham Quirk, Krista Adams, Michael Sunderland, Mark Williams, and Ross Vasta MP
Local business-owners enjoyed an afternoon tea with local representatives of all three levels of government earlier in March.
The event was organized by the Brisbane Southside Chamber of Commerce, and held at The Love Well Café on the 3rd of March.
Peter Williams (P G Williams and Associates), Mark Williams (Mark Williams Architects), and Alice Ruhe (SMB Advisory) all won the opportunity through an auction held at our December Breakfast with Former Lord Mayor Graham Quirk.
Mr Quirk was joined by local representatives from both parties, including Ross Vasta MP, Joe Kelly MP, Corrine McMillan MP, and Councillors Krista Adams and Steven Huang.
Attendees discussed such issues as how the Council can support local business in Mt Gravatt, the 2032 Olympics, and a possible koala hospital.
Brisbane Southside Chamber of Commerce President Elizabeth Fairon commended the local members for their support, and willingness to engage in dialogue with the community.
“We appreciate the ongoing support from our local politicians for the Brisbane Southside Chamber of Commerce, its members and businesses that operate in this region.
“This was a fantastic opportunity for some ‘one on one’ time to discuss issues important to the local region.” Ms Fairon said.
Our chamber looks forward to more involvement and dialogue between small-business and elected members.
