The next state election, to occur in March 2018, will be fought under radically redrawn boundaries with big changes taking place locally. 

The seat of Bright is being merged with the neighbouring seat of Mitchell (represented by my colleague Corey Wingard) and two new seats have been created: Gibson and Black.

Corey and I have always worked as a close team so we found no difficulty coming to an arrangement where Corey will contest the northern seat of Gibson while I will run in the southern seat of Black.

Black (click here to see a map of this electorate) encompasses the suburbs of Seacliff, Seacliff Park, Kingston Park, Marino, Seaview Downs, Seacombe Heights, Darlington, O’Halloran Hill, Trott Park, Sheidow Park and Hallett Cove and is an area I have lived in and around since I moved to Australia 15 years ago.

My journey to Parliament has been forged entirely within our community. From environmental work in Hallett Cove to surf life saving along our coast, I have always had a strong desire to make this local community and our state the best it can be. My focus is on grassroots connection with the community, strong communication and the development of imaginative ideas which have the potential to transform our community. 

As part of this, I want to hear from you about what how you think this can be achieved. Contact me on any of the methods below to let me know what local and state issues are important to you or click here to fill out my community survey!

I look forward to working with my existing and new constituents as we move towards the 2018 election.
