STATEMENT ON PREMIER

The New South Wales liberal party has elected Dominic Perrottet as the Premier of New South Wales.

I consider Dominic Perrottet an excellent choice to give the people of NSW certainty and hope during the incredibly challenging time we face right now.

Mr Perrottet has been at the forefront of the state’s leadership through the pandemic and will continue to deliver for the people of New South Wales as we get on with the job.

Mr Perrottet has demonstrated great governance in his role as NSW’s Treasurer. Since I was elected as the Member for Goulburn, Dominic has been a tremendous supporter of the entire Goulburn electorate. I look forward to continuing to work closely with him in his new role as Premier.

Mr Perrottet has my trust and confidence as Premier to lead the state through this period in a way which we will come out stronger and more resilient.

In under a week NSW will be out of lockdown, slowly returning to getting on with our lives. I am optimistic about the future of NSW and the electorate of Goulburn.
