My plan for Flinders

Flinders is an area that has and will always be special to me.

I was born and grew up in the Flinders Electorate and I’m proud to call it home.

By working together, I believe we can build a stronger and healthier community.

I will continue to work with the community for better facilities and services in the electorate.
