Angelina Brazier 25 Years JP(resized)

Hinchinbrook MP, Andrew Cripps, recently presented Cardwell resident, Angelina Brazier, with a certificate from the Government of Queensland in recognition of 25 years of volunteer service to the community as a Justice of the Peace.

Mr Cripps said Mrs Brazier had first been appointed in 1983 and had actually served as one of a network of volunteer JP’s across the State for 32 years, for which the Government of Queensland was very grateful.

“When I visited Angelina earlier this month to present the certificate in person, I asked what the highlight of her time had been as a JP and she replied that the most rewarding period was helping people after Cyclone Yasi” said Mr Cripps.

“As everyone knows, many people in Cardwell and other communities after Cyclone Yasi had important documents that had been lost or damaged and local JPs were kept busy witnessing statements and certifying copies” he said.

Mr Cripps congratulated Mrs Brazier and thanked her for many years of voluntary service as a Justice of the Peace, a role that often goes unnoticed in the community but is highly valued by those who need assistance and advice.
