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.
