Stephen Forrester was born in Brewarrina and raised in Goodooga. Mr Forrester has an extensive work background, working in all various occupations. The knowledge he has learnt during his employment and everyday life has allowed him to pursue a commitment to changing the lives of Aboriginal People in not only Goodooga and the Murdi Paaki Region.
Goodooga Community Priorities and Priority Actions
- Observe and value our Aboriginal traditions, culture and history and ensure this knowledge is passed to the next generations;
- Enhance our social and economic status by preparing and implementing an economic development strategy which sees essential services return to the community through, in the first instance, the re-opening of the local store;
- Advocate for and participate in initiatives which greatly enhance the engagement of our infants and children with quality learning and raise their level of academic achievement at all stages from early childhood to adulthood;
- Improve the heath and wellbeing of our residents through ensuring all houses are adequately maintained, cooled and heated and are suitable to allow our Elders and those with a disability to live independently.
