Very humbling to be re-elected as our community representative in Canberra. I thank people for their support.
This one is personal, the flood recovery task has only just begun, there is much more to do. I will work with and push any government, State or Federal, both Coalition and Labor, and any bureaucrat to speed up our recovery. The task is above politics and needs continued urgency.
I look forward to continuing to deliver the infrastructure and services our growing communities need.
I acknowledge the other candidates, who were a great and interesting group of people, all reflecting our wonderfully diverse community.
I thank all my helpers and supporters, I literally couldn’t have done this without you; a swing to the Nationals locally reflects their great work. To my staff, who go above and beyond in helping people in our community, they are a great team, thank you.
To my family, Karen, Bridget, Sean and Rosie, your love and support sustains me in this role.
We have a world leading democracy, I wish the new government well. There are many challenges we face but I am always optimistic about our future due the character of the Australian people.
