The change we seek for the Upper Hunter does not come down to just you or I alone. It is about every person who lives in our communities. It is about every voice, no matter how loud.
The Upper Hunter is being heard. But change and development is only possible if we work together to make it happen. Neither you nor I can do it alone.
Every voice counts.
Let us work together to discover our vision for the Upper Hunter communities.
I am proud to be a strong voice on behalf of the Upper Hunter communities. The welfare of our electorate is my key priority. Our growth, our prosperity, our diversity, our harmony. With your help, I look toward a brighter future for us today, tomorrow and for the future generations that call this generously beautiful, rural region their home.
I am proud to represent The Nationals and honoured to stand up and speak out on behalf of the Upper Hunter on the issues that matter the most to us.
It is through many voices that we can make the biggest difference.
Every voice counts! Work with us to make your voice heard.
I am a countryman at heart. I always have been and I always will be. I am lucky to have spent more than 30 years now in the Upper Hunter, and you know what… I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My family has a long history in the Hunter. In fact, my ancestors, William and Elizabeth Bird operated the punt over the river at Morpeth in the mid-nineteenth century. And why wouldn’t they choose this beautiful area to live. We have it all here.
The rolling hills and valleys, our first class mining, wineries and equestrian industries, our vibrant infrastructure and solid foundation of traditional and modern architecture. I feel very lucky to have now spent more than 30 years as a resident of the Upper Hunter.
