Member for Gibson in SA Parliament

I decided to get involved with politics because I was sick of seeing businesses, jobs, and our children all disappearing from South Australia to other states. Rather than complain I decided to do something about fixing it. So I did. In 2014 I was elected to Parliament in the seat of Mitchell and was recently re-elected to the newly formed electorate of Gibson. This is just one way an individual can contribute to making our state great once again; getting involved in community groups & events, supporting local business and talent, talking to MPs and councillors about issues and then working together to achieve a better outcome are just some examples. I am passionate about making sure that as my children grow up and are ready to start looking for work, that there are jobs available for them. South Australia is one of the worst performing states in the country on a range of key economic performance indicators and as a result a large number of South Australians are doing it tough. I believe that if we work together, and the government listens to the people, stops the waste, and delivers, we can live in a prosperous state full of potential and climb back up the economic ladder. I am always ready to hear the views of my constituents, to better represent them in Parliament, and to fight for what is important to us all at every possible opportunity.

Ministerial responsibilities

I am responsible for the following ministries:

  • Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services
  • Sport, Recreation and Racing

I look forward to having more to do with you and meeting you out and about in my electorate or throughout our great state. If you do ever have a concern and would like to book an appointment to have a friendly chat please do not hesitate to contact me and my staff.

(b) notes that, prior to the 2014 state election, the Labor Party promised to invest $31 million in upgrading Noarlunga Hospital but subsequently reduced this funding allocation by more than half; and

(c) recognises the quality and commitment of the front-line staff who work at Noarlunga Hospital and their concern that the government's Transforming Health program is undermining the hospital's long-term future as a general community hospital.
