Member for Benambra
So far, my efforts have yielded results in:
- The sealing of the Omeo Highway
- Advocating for Wodonga Senior Secondary College to be redeveloped
- The building of the new Belvoir Specialist School
- The building of the Eskdale DEPI depot
- Funding for Benambra’s recreational facilities
My accomplishments during my term in government from 2010 – 2014:
- I secured over $135 million in built and social infrastructure, above and beyond government operating costs.
- I advocates for the funding and development of an improved Wodonga Emergency Department to modernize and improve efficiencies in service delivery.
And my work does not stop there! Benambra’s considerable agricultural offer is also leading me to support farmers. The addition of Rutherglen into my electorate in 2014, created the opportunity for close collaboration with the then Coalition Government announcing an Inbound Super Trade Mission in 2015, which assisted in Rutherglen’s exposure on the international wine market.
The Benambra District has seen over the years that two of my main qualities are my eagerness to listen and my strength to speak! Consulting, advocating, and helping local small businesses – the drive of the Benambra District – is the path for growth and economic stability.
Supporting all community-bonding activities, I have always been involved in sports and recreational pursuits, including my passion for fishing in the local waterways and playing golf. Leading by example, I consider sports a gateway for a healthy lifestyle and a bridge for social activities.
Benambra’s geographical and historical heritage has always been one of my priorities. I am constantly pursuing the protection of the environment, and one of the dearest matters to me is the protection of the Australian brumbies. Strong efforts are being made by my entire team to maintain their presence, legacy, and tie to the Victorian Alps.
Everything above is just a mere glimpse at the work performed by my office to help YOU!
Whether you are a child, student, farmer, blue-collar worker, or corporate professional, my plan for Benambra ensures your needs are met. Through progressive infrastructure development, a strong economy, healthcare access, and high-quality education, Benambra can remain the pride of its citizens.
