Welcome

Thanks for visiting my website.  I hope you will find some useful information about what’s happening in the Port Adelaide electorate, local media releases, and links to the latest news from Canberra and my parliamentary speeches. 

While Federal Parliament meets in Canberra for around 20 weeks a year, I believe it is important to be active in the local community, to know what is going on, and to find out what's important to people living in the electorate. 

If you would like to let me know about a community event, or suggest a location for a street corner meeting, please give my office a call.
