I’m Janet Lambert, Labor candidate for Lyons. I have lived in the electorate of Lyons for the best part of 26 years, it is where my husband and I have raised our three wonderful children. I also work in the area.
Volunteering in the community is second nature to me and over the years I have been involved in a wide variety of community clubs and organisations.
It was this involvement in volunteering which inevitably led me to nominate for the local council elections and I was delighted to be elected to the Northern Midlands Council. To this day, as a councillor, I continue advocating for positive outcomes in a variety of issues.
I want to be part of making Lyons a better place to live and work, whilst providing opportunities that translate into real employment options, enabling people to stay in the area.
I am passionate about seeing young people meet their full potential, and for me that means completing year 12. Our youth need to have direct pathways to TAFE, University or secure employment.
Providing preventative health programs into our regional areas is also important to me.
I love my recreational fishing and will be a strong advocate for both recreational and local commercial fishing.
Over the next few months, I will be talking to as many people as I can. I am listening and want to hear about what matters to you, along with what is important to your community. So I urge you to please get in touch and let me know how I can best represent you.
