State Member for Malvern


Restoring Integrity in Victorian Politics

Victoria’s integrity agencies don’t currently have the resources or the powers they need to eliminate corruption.

As Shadow Attorney-General, that is why I support a major boost to the funding and powers of the Independent Broad-based Anti-Corruption Commission (IBAC) and the Victorian Ombudsman.

When it comes to cleaning out corruption, our state needs a watchdog, not a lapdog. A $10 million annual budget boost to IBAC, a $2 million annual budget boost to the Ombudsman and an increase in powers to hold public hearings will go a long way to restoring integrity in Victorian public life.

We all deserve to see politics cleaned up in this state and that is why I want to see a Victorian Government that will adopt this plan.

Get Malvern Moving

As a Malvern local I know that traffic congestion and delays are a serious nuisance that affects our community.

But rather than complain, I’ve developed a comprehensive package of measures to Get Malvern Moving!

There are 3 key elements to the plan:

  • Removing 3 level crossings on the Glen Waverley line
  • Fixing 40km/hr speed limits
  • Extending the No. 3 tram

Removing these traffic snarls will let you spend less time on the road and more time with loved ones and friends. 

Serrell St Kindergarten

The Serrell Street Kinder has played an enormous part in the Malvern East community for 50 years. It was recently announced that Uniting Early Learning is no longer going to manage the kinder, leaving its future up in the air. I have worked with local parents and raised this issue in Parliament because we need to secure the future of Serrell Street Kinder.

Thanks to the efforts of a dedicated parents group, a new provider is set to manage the kindergarten from 2023 and provide high quality care and education for local children. This is a terrific outcome and I congratulate the parents committee for their unwavering determination to keep Serrell St Kinder a part of our community.

Stay Up To Date

I am passionate about our local community, our state and our future.
That is why serving as the member for Malvern is such a privilege.

Because Victoria is a great state but should be doing better than we are.

Victoria needs a State Government that is working for all Victorians, across all of Victoria.

To ensure that there are opportunities for all Victorians, not just a few.

I will always work hard to speak up for my local community – because to me this isn’t just an electorate, this is my home.

Working together we have so much we can achieve: for the Malvern electorate and for Victoria.

I pledge that I will work each and every day to help the people of my community and Victoria to achieve our amazing potential.

SUZIE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AROUND THE END OF FEBRUARY Suzie has recently let her pups go on to start their own lives and she is ready to move on with her future. Suzie is very small and the sweetest little dog and would spend as much time as you have to spare sitting on your knee but she is also very young with lots of energy and will need a busy active life where she is out and about with the family on all their activities! She possibly suffers some separation anxiety and she will need a home with someone who is around most of the time, but has the experience to impart to Suzie the skills of managing to be alone sometimes. She will most likely live with another dog but she is not overly interested in their presence, so if there is an existing canine in the family it will need to be one that is content to let Suzie do her own thing. Suzie is possilby toilet trained
