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.

Let's get Victoria

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.

Such great news to see that the state member for Malvern is a cat person!

Cats are so good! No walking them or bathing them. Very self sufficient 😁

Anti-semitism is racism.

It has no place in Australia or anywhere.

Nobody likes what’s happening in Gaza, the whole situation is awful. But when I see what some, not all of the pro Palestinian supporters are inflicting on the Jewish community in Melbourne it reminds me of Germany in the 1930s And we all know how that turned out. Ironically it’s coming from the left who are stirring the hatred Why can’t people see that facist,racist behaviour doesn’t belong in a civilised nation like ours?

Already signed, glad you posted this Michael O'Brien MP.


What are you even talking about? No wonder the Liberals are almost obsolete. Start talking about the cost of living if you want to be relevant
