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.

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.
