Autumn Newsletter 2020

It has now been two years since I was re-elected for my third term to represent you in State Parliament and as a Minister in the Marshall Liberal Government.

This is an opportune time to reflect on what we have achieved together as a community and delivered as part of the state government.

There have been many major and local projects announced within the electorate of Adelaide and we have a strong plan to do so much more.

Exciting projects such as the Lot Fourteen innovation and cultural precinct, which adds economic opportunities and vibrancy to Adelaide, and the delivery of Adelaide Botanic High School, providing more education opportunities to local students, and the culmination of the vision I had when seeking election in 2010.

Each day, when I am working in my electorate, I do not lose sight of the fact that I am here to represent my constituents and to ensure the Marshall Liberal Government’s strong plan to deliver more jobs, lower costs and better services is achieved.

It is a pleasure to serve you and I look forward continuing to support you by raising issues on your behalf.
