The role of your federal MP

I live in the electorate in South Hobart. I spend about a third of my time in Canberra for parliamentary sittings, where my job is to debate and vote on issues, liaise with ministers and other parliamentarians, meet with interest groups, and represent the Clark electorate in Parliament. As a Member of the Australian Parliament, my job is to be active on issues of national significance, for example health, education, improving government pensions and payments, the environment, defence and security, foreign affairs, the economy and trade, federal taxation and spending, and immigration and asylum seekers. I also advocate for greater federal involvement in some policy areas traditionally left to state governments, such as gambling reform and animal welfare.

The rest of the time I can be found in my Hobart office or out in the electorate, including my regular mobile offices in different locations (details of the mobile office are on the home page and listed on Facebook). I am always happy to meet constituents to discuss any issue. You can also make a time to meet with me in my office, via phone or virtually, or in your home or workplace if required.

To arrange a meeting with me or my staff, please contact us.
