Quotes attributable to Member for Maitland Jenny Aitchison
“I congratulate all of Maitland’s recipients of the 2018 Community Building Partnership grants. This program allows these organisations the opportunity to receive state government funding and undertake projects they normally wouldn’t have the money to bring to reality.”
“To all of Maitland’s applicants I say a big thank you for taking the time to nominate your project. There was strong a field of projects submitted and I look forward to seeing our community’s nominations in 2019.”
