Real Action for Leichhardt

Welcome to my website »

As the re-elected Member for Leichhardt, I’m very happy to represent this region in a Coalition Government. Thank you for putting your faith in me for another three years! I have been overwhelmed by the number of people who supported my campaign in so many ways. I’m looking forward to being able to deliver more for the Far North and restore hope, reward and opportunity for all Australians.

We’re sending out a very strong message to the community that we are open for business, and the first priority nationally is to start work on getting rid of the carbon tax. I was also very pleased to be asked to Chair the committee that will formulate the White Paper that will drive the Coalition’s Policy for Northern Australia. We’ll look at all aspects in relation to water security, land tenure, the insurance issues, diversity for economic security, tropical education, health and sports, defence, fishing…. a whole raft of things.
