Fixing our local roads and reducing congestion
I’m working hard to get you home sooner and safer. In the last 2 years I’ve delivered over $230 million in local road funding. I’m fixing bottlenecks like the Indooroopilly and Kenmore roundabouts as well as duplicating the Centenary Highway Bridge.
Securing Australia’s economic recovery
Australia is leading the world in both our health and economic outcomes. Australia was the first major advanced economy to have more people employed than before Covid-19. Our plan delivers more tax cuts so you can keep more of what you earn, it will also create more jobs by increased investment, more infrastructure projects, more support for small business and new skills programs.
Providing a secure retirement
Our seniors have made our community the amazing place it is today. I am ensuring that every hard working local senior can plan for their retirement and have security once they retire. We stopped Labor’s attack on savings with their retiree tax and their housing tax. Our plan will also allow local residents over 60 to contribute up to $300,000 into their super when they are ready to downsize their home.
Protecting our environment for the future
I know how important it is to protect and preserve our environment for the future. I’m supporting our local catchment and bushcare groups with funding for more planting, wildlife breeding boxes, creek rejuvenation and weed eradication. As part of the Morrison Government I am tackling climate change and investing in renewables like clean hydrogen. As a result, emissions are at their lowest level since 1995. I’m also working closely with Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner and our carbon neutral Brisbane City Council to put in place practical energy solutions like solar panels for our local community buildings.
Supporting families with better health and education
As a young dad, I know the joy – and uncertainty – that comes with raising a young family. I want to make sure families in our area have access to the best education opportunities, and quality affordable healthcare. We’re increasing the Child Care Subsidy for families with more than one child up to five in childcare. We’re also reducing out of pocket costs for X-Rays, ultrasounds and other scans and we’re adding more everyday medicines to the PBS including for asthma and migraines.
