How I can help as your MP

As your MP I’m here to represent and assist you. If you need help with an individual issue please get in touch. This could include dealing with State government departments or agencies, getting information about local infrastructure or developments, or discussing ideas for how we can improve our city. If you send my office an email, I’ll try to respond personally.


I am passionate about supporting our active community by amplifying the work of local groups and campaigns. Here are some of the specific ways my office can provide support:

  • Free printing newsletters, flyers, and other materials
  • Free use of our meeting room and event equipment (PA system, marquee, BBQ)
  • Help promoting your group or event
  • Raffle prize donations for community groups and schools
  • Letters of support for grant applications
  • Small grants to assist with events


My work in Parliament is based on my work here on the west side. I try to use every chance I get in Parliament to call for improvements for our community, or big policy changes that you care about. 


I can help Maiwar residents with:

  • Housing
  • Dealing with government agencies and ministers
  • Local issues (traffic, roads, development)
  • Your community projects (including photocopying and meeting spaces)
  • Funding applications, local grants and awards

If you live in the Maiwar electorate, contact my office to set up a meeting with me or my staff - or drop into one of my pop-up offices for a chat.


Please check this page for key contacts including emergency services and community support.

Please visit my COVID-19 page for local information and assistance with the pandemic. For information and resources during a natural disaster, check this page.

I also run a Facebook group called West Side Helping Hands Mutual Aid for west side locals to offer and ask for support during a crisis (like floods, bushfires or COVID-19 lockdown), and to connect with local organisations who need volunteers. Please consider joining, sharing this group with your neighbours and inviting anyone on the west side to join.

The best way to reach me is by emailing [email protected] or calling 3737 4100. If we're not in the office and/or you can't get through on the phone, leave a voicemail and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Check my Facebook for regular updates

Something else?

I’m always looking for more ways to help! I think being a good local member means actively consulting with the community at every opportunity, so I always want to hear from you. Please get in touch any time.
