My vision for Moore is to see the city of Joondalup continue to grow and prosper and become a safe, vibrant regional city which provides locals with employment opportunities close to home. Over the past 5½ years I have been extremely fortunate to represent the electorate of Moore, which is home to the pristine northern coastline as well as the economic hub of the city of Joondalup.

I am committed to ensuring continued access to world-class health care at our local Joondalup hospital, which will be extended; a wide variety of professional services within the emerging central business district of Joondalup; and higher education opportunities within our innovative learning precinct at Edith Cowan University and the North Metropolitan TAFE to develop the skilled workforce of the future.

I look forward to working cooperatively with the business community to promote Joondalup as a destination for tourism and investment and to develop new business opportunities and markets for our products and services. Together we must promote the commercialisation of Australian research and development and the application of innovative and new technology into our industries to drive employment growth for our residents.

I look forward to continuing as a strong advocate for increased federal funding for roads, infrastructure and essential services such as health, education and defence to benefit my community of Moore. May I take this opportunity to thank all of my retiring colleagues and the staff at Parliament House for their dedicated service and wish them well for their future. I thank the community for placing its trust in me and respectfully seek that support to continue.
