Getting the budget back on track
Thanks for visiting my website.
The Federal Government made a solemn commitment to get Australia back on track. Our Budget measures are tough but fair. There is no easy way to deal with the rotten set of numbers that Labor left us – cumulative deficits over the forward estimates of $123 billion and debt surging towards $667 billion.
At a local level, we are continuing to make important investments in jobs and infrastructure –$155m for a Growth Fund for skills and training, manufacturing and regional infrastructure; $3b for the East West Link; the $371m duplication of the Princes Highway between Winchelsea and Colac, a $50m upgrade of the Great Ocean Road. And of course, with the opening of the HQ of the National Disability Insurance Agency, we are proudly rolling out the NDIS. For more, read my recent column in the Geelong Advertiser here.

I am absolutely committed to being a strong, local voice for the people of Corangamite. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if ever I can be of help.
