What do I do when I am in Canberra?

As one of 151 Members of the House of Representatives from all around Australia, I spend about 18 weeks a year in Canberra. When Parliament sits we debate with other Members of Parliament about legislation; question Ministers about the work that they are doing; give speeches and vote on new or amended legislation

Outside Parliament I attend lots of meetings and events with people who have particular issues they want to discuss or problems to be solved

What do I do when I am in Cook?

When I am in my electorate I meet with constituents, attend events or visit local schools and businesses.  The people in my Electorate of Cook are important to me

I love that my Electorate boasts the four Bate Bay beaches which are supported by four great Surf Clubs powered by a dedicated team of volunteers. I mostly enjoy hearing all the great stories from constituents about the community organisations they run or attend

Why did I want to go into Parliament?To make sure that Australia is always the best it can be
What is my legacy I hope to leave?That young people growing up today have an even better Australia to live in than I did
