Poll for the Division of Canning declared!
The poll for the Division of Canning has been declared and I am grateful to have been returned for my fifth consecutive term in the seat.
I am humbled to have been granted such support by the people of Canning and am ready to help govern this nation in a way our society deserves – purposefully and methodically.
There is a lot of work ahead for the Coalition but we are ready.
The Coalition will deliver better services to Australians, more efficiently and without Labor’s waste.
The carbon tax will go; our borders will be more secure; there will be more jobs and a stronger economy; we’ll help families get ahead and deal with cost of living pressures.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me should I be able to assist you in my capacity as your local Federal Member for Canning.
Thank you for your support!
