Hello Danae/Cait,

Is it possible to have a campaign added to your web site, as a news item and as a call for volunteers (2 events)? It is the Stop The Trains (Laburnum) campaign.

Background: Many trains skip Laburnum, causing problems for students to the nearby school. My campaign is to alter express trains so that more of them stop at Laburnum, especially between 8:00 and 8:30am, and to have more myki readers installed on the platform, to make touch-off easier for students.

My petition to the Leg Assembly requests that additional myki readers be installed, and express services to be altered to stop at Laburnum, especially between 8:00 and 8:30am. This petition already has 81 signatures.

I will be at Laburnum station at 7:50am to 8:50am on Thursday/Friday 4/5 Sept to collect even more signatures. At the risk of being short notice, can I put out a request for volunteers to assist? RSVP to Nick Bishop 0438 366342.

It is very fast-paced work when the students swarm through.

Students and the public can also sign at Box Hill High School’s general office, in a less hectic environment.

A logo is available which I will send through later tonight.
