Yesterday I was honoured to have been appointed by the Premier Dominic Perrottet to his new cabinet as the Minister for Local Government.

I am very honoured and humbled by the appointment and look forward to working with Councils and stakeholders across NSW.

Local Government plays such an important role in communities and I look forward to continuing the great work that former Minister Shelley Hancock has achieved.

As Minister for Local Government my focus will be to not only support the delivery of Local Government services but also the improvement of the essential functions which Local Government provides.

I look forward to working with the Premier, and of course, continuing to represent the Goulburn electorate.
