Member for Penrith, Stuart Ayres MP congratulates Liam Rankine on being selected as the YMCA New South Wales Youth Parliament representative for Penrith.
Liam, of South Penrith is looking forward to visiting Parliament and learning more about the parliamentary process and hearing the stories and concerns from others about the individual areas of the State.
“Liam is a pleasant, well-articulated young man and will be a great representative for Penrith. “Said Mr Ayres.
In 2012 Liam was elected to represent Western Sydney at the NSW State Student Representative Council (SRC) Conference and was also chosen to be a part of the State Conference Action Team who are a group of students from throughout NSW who organise the State SRC Conference.
“It has been my pleasure to nominate and sponsor Liam for this rewarding program.” said Mr Ayres.
The YMCA NSW Youth Parliament is a program that offers young people aged 15-18 a way to put across their ideas about issues that concern them. It is a program where the opinions and concerns of young people in NSW are heard by those who have the power to make laws.
Young people can be nominated for Youth Parliament by Members of the NSW Parliament or apply directly to take part in the program.
