Do you think Macquarie Fields train station should have a lift? Do you think the M5 East toll should be scrapped? Would like to see more recreation spaces in Macquarie Fields?

Macquarie Fields MP Anoulack Chanthivong is seeking residents' input for his 2020 Christmas Wish-List for the Macquarie Fields electorate.

"My annual Christmas Wish-List has become a tradition and this year I'm inviting residents to have a say on what they consider the most important issues in the electorate," Mr Chanthivong said.

Mr Chanthivong has penned a letter to Santa each year requesting a fair share for the Macquarie Fields electorate since he was elected in 2015.

"I write to Santa every year in the hope that he will deliver the goods for our community because the Liberal government has consistently ignored and short-changed our local area," he said.

"Whether it's blatant over-development, a new toll on an old road, selling off school land or no lift for Macquarie Fields Station, our community is fed up with the Liberal government's inaction and unfairness."

Mr Chanthivong said this year he was distributing a flyer to the electorate, calling on constituents to nominate the issues most important to them or include their own suggestions.

"I believe people will want to see 'Scrap the M5 East toll' at the top of this year's wish-list, given the overwhelming response to my recent petition," he said.

"I look forward to hearing from my community and continuing the fight for our fair share."

Constituents are encouraged to complete the flyer and return it to Anoulack's electorate office in Ingleburn or have your say at www.letsbackanoulack.com by Friday, November 13.
