AN increase to security at Greenwood train station will be the first issue Labor’s Jessica Stojkovski hopes to address as the new Kingsley MLA.

Ms Stojkovski claimed a surprise victory with about a 14.7 per cent swing over Mental Health Minister Andrea Mitchell at the State Election.

She will be based in Ms Mitchell’s former office in Woodvale.

Ms Stojkovski, the daughter of ex-Joondalup MLA Tony O’Gorman, promoted an improvement to security at the train station as one of her election commitments. She also had environmental concerns.

“I will be looking to work with the City of Joondalup to address the mosquito and midge issue associated with Lake Goollelal and Yellagonga Regional Park,” she said.

She said she would focus on issues important to families in Kingsley.

The former Landsdale Residents Association president had lived in the northern suburbs for most of her life.

She would look to take a fresh approach from that of her predecessor.

“I hope to differ from Andrea by focusing on the issues important to families in Kingsley,” she said.

“From door knocking whilst on the campaign, I know that families are worried about jobs and apprenticeships and also properly and adequately resourcing our schools.”
