Welcome to my website. It contains information about the Altona electorate and about what I have been up to locally and in Parliament. I’m available to assist you and your family, particularly in dealing with any problems you may have with State government services. I also want to hear your ideas about how the Victorian Government can provide better services for you and your family.


Most importantly, it is my job to stand up for residents in Altona, Altona Meadows, Point Cook, Sanctuary Lakes, Seabrook, Laverton and Laverton North.
