As a new ACT minister I am determined to bring energy to my portfolios and work in a way that strengthens connections with the community and focuses on better service delivery across our health, transport and higher education sectors.
It’s an honour to be given responsibility for some of the services our community interacts with on a day-to-day basis in my roles as Minister for Higher Education, Training and Research, Minister for Transport and Municipal Services and Assistant Health Minister.
Some key priorities in my new portfolios will be to:
- Plan and explain the integration of our transport network, and create a single and efficient MyWay system.
- Ensure Canberra continues to grow into a research and innovation hub, attracting the best minds to our city’s institutions.
- Continue the focus on preventative and community health to keep our city active and healthy.
I’m looking forward to improving our transport network across the whole of Canberra, which includes buses, light rail, roads, cycling and walking. Public transport is such an important service and how we move around our city is becoming more and more important as we grow.Read more
This year will be an important year for Canberra and I would like to thank my ACT Labor colleagues, especially the Chief Minister, for their support as I become an ACT Minister for the first time.
I am very excited about playing a bigger role in the ACT Government and having the chance to promote growth, opportunity and fairness in our community.Read more
