I recently acknowledged the work of Suzanne Pritchard in State Parliament.

Suzanne epitomises the wonderful community spirit we enjoy in Lake Macquarie.She has been the President of the Coal Point Progress Association for 23 years and is a passionate advocate for sustainable development. The association is a vital part of the Coal Point community and has not only steered important environmental work but also helped to forge the character of the area

Among Suzanne's notable achievements is establishing and managing the Threatened Species Last Stand project that was recently completed after six busy and productive years. She was able to secure a $250,000 Environmental Trust grant to fund that project that has delivered significant outcomes for the local area.

She is an extraordinary person who has achieved so much for her local community while juggling her own business, being a single mum and caring for her aged father.

I thank Suzanne for all she has done for the Lake Macquarie community.
