I will fight to make sure that our local area, including one of the fastest growing areas in Victoria,  gets the infrastructure and services it needs now and into the future.

I've been listening to locals about the issues affecting the Kew electorate. My priorities include:

  • Improving infrastructure and local roads to cater for increased demand
  • Delivering better schools and health services
  • Building safer and stronger communities

I want to hear from you about what I can do to make Kew a better place for you and your family. You can call, write a letter, or send me an email any time.
