Action for Indi

We all share a passion to ensure that Indi has a strong voice in Government.  I have never shied away when there's a tough job to tackle and with over a decade of experience in Government, I know how to get things done.  Time out of the political bubble has provided me with a renewed perspective and reaffirmed the strength of my commitment to our local community.  There's a lot to do and I'm up for the challenge.

Our campaign will be strong on policy, on integrity and accountability. We need good roads and solid infrastructure, action on industry, support for farmers and to maximise our tourism potential. We want our region to thrive, which is why we need to turn talk into action.  We need your help to ensure representation that will bring real results for Indi.

nbn Sky Muster network

Residents living in regional and rural areas across North East Victoria can begin to connect to affordable, high-speed broadband with the launch of services on nbn’s Sky Muster satellite network.  An estimated 12,965 homes and businesses across Indi will be eligible to connect to the service as they are outside of nbn’s fixed line and fixed wireless coverage areas.

Many homes and businesses in our more remote areas are still dependent on very basic internet access, including tourist areas which rely on eftpos and online services and email for their business.  Sky Muster will make doing business easier in these areas.

Jobs secure for Benalla munitions factory

IMGP3994.JPGCongratulations to the Benalla munitions factory on announcing a commercial arrangement between Thales Australia and Orica to make mining boosters in Benalla.  

The Government and the team at Thales are committed to Benalla and this commercial opportunity will help them sustain and potentially grow their workforce.  This arrangement secures 100 jobs across Benalla and Mulwala and complements the Government’s investment in Defence capability through the White Paper.

Job security, job growth and the local economy is the number one priority for me as the Liberal Candidate for Indi.

I joined the Minister for Defence Materiel, Hon Dan Tehan, for a briefing and tour of the Benalla munitions factory on 11 April and discussed the potential for commercial applications of defence.  This is welcome news for the sustainability of this industry in our region.


Standing up for local truck drivers

The Coalition Government has committed to introduce legislation to abolish the Road Safety Remuneration System.  It has been very clear from the outset that this Tribunal has been a smokescreen for the unions to price owner-drivers out of the market. Owner-drivers deserve a level playing field and there are already other means in place to regulate for improvements in safety for the industry. It is a disgrace that the livelihoods of hard working small business has been compromised by a backroom deal made by Bill Shorten, who set up this Tribunal as a Minister in the Gillard Government under the guise of safety.
