Williams Congratulates Local OAM Recipients
Member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams has congratulated local OAM recipients for their outstanding contribution to the Port Macquarie community.
“Former NSW Magistrate Wayne Evans, Gold medal winning Paralympian Ryley Batt and refugee advocate John Ingram have all been honoured for their dedication and hard work in their chosen fields,” Mrs Williams said.
“Each man has been recognised for their individual achievements and community work and I am so pleased to offer congratulations on behalf of the Port Macquarie-Hastings community.
“We are so lucky to have them as not only local residents but also as community champions.
“To see their names on the Australia Day honours list is wonderful.
“Our area has a very active group of OAM recipients led by local businessman John Ross OAM who meet regularly and I am sure they will be welcomed into the fold with open arms,” Mrs Williams said.
