About Mark

My Service to the Community

As a decorated Police Officer of over 27 years I have worked tirelessly in the Northern Suburbs keeping our community safe. I have been a finalist for WA Police Officer of the Year for my work engaging with community organisations to help combat youth disadvantage and received numerous commendations for my work in crises and service in East Timor.

As a current surf lifesaver and having served as a volunteer firefighter I understand what it takes to work for the community. I am committed to making the Burns Beach community more prosperous for everyone.

Our Plan for Jobs

Working on the front line in the community for so long has taught me a number of lessons. But the one lesson that sticks with me the most is that governments must invest in jobs.

Colin Barnett and the Liberals have had since 2008 to make sure we keep jobs in WA and they have done nothing. Now working families are finding it tough to survive as unemployment rises.

My first priority as your local member is to advocate for jobs to stay in WA through investment and diversification. WA Labor has a plan for jobs and I am going to be its strongest supporter.

A Strong Local Voice

I intend to be strong local voice advocating on the issues that our crucial for our community. Joondalup Health Campus does a great job in servicing the surrounding community but it needs to be expanded.  Our schools need more staff, new classrooms and facilities to help with overcrowding. WA Labor’s Metronet plan will deliver key upgrades and deliver better public transport that will help ease traffic congestion.

I do not support the privatisation of Western Power.
