Leader of The Opposition Matthew Guy has asked me to continue to serve in the Shadow Cabinet and I have proudly accepted his offer.
I will remain as the Shadow Minister for Ports and Freight and add the consumer affairs portfolio to my responsibilities.
I’m looking forward to getting to work in the consumer affairs portfolio to ensure people are treated fairly and justly when accessing goods and services and ensuring a fair and competitive marketplace for Victorians.
I am pleased to be able to continue my work with the freight industry who continue to conduct their essential work keeping our country moving despite the multitude of challenges being thrown at them.
I am confident that my friend, colleague and fellow regional MP Louise Staley will continue to hold the Andrews Labor Government to account for its lacklustre and wasteful approach to rural road maintenance as the new Shadow Minister for Roads.
In our region we know all too well how hard it can be dealing with government bureaucrats who couldn’t point to us on a map.
As our region continues to recover from the ongoing lockdowns and restrictions we have endured I’ll be our regions’ fieriest advocate in Parliament and in the decision making body of the Liberal National Opposition.
The people of South West Coast have now twice given me the great honour of representing them and being their voice in State Parliament and I will never waiver from that responsibility.
