The second in a series of meetings designed to allow Bunbury MLA Don Punch to update the community on the progress of his pre-election commitments was held on Saturday.

Mr Punch said feedback from first two meetings on the topics of infrastructure and health had been positive.

“We’re in the process of writing out to all the participants as part of my accountability to let them know what’s being done in regards to the questions raised,” he said.

“They have been good discussions and many people, at the infrastructure meeting particularly, had a real eye on the future.”

Concerns about hospital capacity, inadequate funding for aged care, the lack of substance withdrawal services and the provision of mental health services were all raised on Saturday.

“The vast majority of issues raised were issues I am well aware of,” Mr Punch said.

“However, hearing firsthand from people about how these impact on their lives really helps me be a strong advocate for our community.”

The next community meeting will take place on March 23 on the topic of Law and Order.

Meetings addressing community services, education, environment and sport will follow.
