Federal Member for Macarthur Dr Mike Freelander has remembered Queen Elizabeth II for her unwavering ability to unite men, women, and children in times of uncertainty.

“When Australia has experienced some of our darkest days, from bushfires, floods, droughts and other troubling events, Queen Elizabeth provided a guiding hand of assurance and consideration,” Dr Freelander said.

Over her many years of service, Her Majesty made 16 trips to our nation, with her first visit in 1954 drawing crowds of 7 million Australians: approximately 70% of our population at the time.

“The Commonwealth has lost a Queen, and her family has lost a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. I join the millions of Australians and individuals around the Commonwealth in mourning Her Majesty, and in wishing His Majesty, Charles III, a successful and peaceful reign,” Dr Freelander said.

For 70 years and 214 days, Queen Elizabeth the Second served with distinction and with her passing comes an official 10 days of mourning.

“As such, I have made the decision to postpone my mobile offices tomorrow that were due to be held in Appin, Rosemeadow and St Helens Park, as well as the forum that was scheduled to be held in Macarthur Heights,” said Campbelltown State MP Greg Warren.

“I intend to also adhere to the 10 days of mourning and the protocols that are associated with it.”

An announcement regarding a new date for those mobile offices will be announced at a later date.

As always, if anyone has any concerns of issues, Mr Warren and his team are available on (02) 4625 3344, email campbelltown@parliament.nsw.gov.au or at 3/72 Queen Street, Campbelltown during office opening hours on Monday to Friday.
