I grew up in Kempsey on the Mid North Coast. The youngest of five children and the son of a local doctor, I learned the importance of caring for my community and helping those with health and social disadvantage challenges.
I’ve worked as a police officer, police prosecutor and solicitor for almost 30 years, and have a good understanding of the law and its importance to society. I’m passionate about representing this wonderful community in Parliament and will work tirelessly on important projects and issues.
I became a politician to work hard and see the residents of Cowper receive the services and support you need, whether it is an aged care package, getting help with the NDIS, or reducing red-tape to make business easier.
I want to see our region grow and prosper through the implementation of The Nationals’ plan for an even stronger economy, by building infrastructure, decentralising government services and delivering projects in regional and rural Australia.
I’m your voice in Canberra and can represent you or advocate on your behalf with Ministers and government decision-makers.
