Welcome to my website.

My priority as the Member for Ballarat is listening to the community and working in the best interests of our local area. As your local Federal Member of Parliament, please don't hesitate to seek assistance from me if you have any enquiries on matters for which the Federal Government is responsible. I also invite you to contact me or my office if you have any questions about local services and issues.

Since being re-elected, I have been working hard to ensure the Government keeps its commitments for our area, keeping in touch with the issues that affect you, and also representing you in Federal Parliament. This website is designed to provide information about government programs and activities across our region.

I look forward to seeing you out and about in the electorate.

Every week you can find me out and about in my electorate, at shows, at sporting events, festivals and in the towns of suburbs of Ballarat. I am always delighted to hear first hand from people at mobile offices, market stalls, train stations and in my electorate office.

Right now, the consistent message from people right across our community is their budgets are already stretched by the Liberals cuts to health, family payments, education and pensions and they just can’t afford Malcolm Turnbull’s GST.
