The best things in life are friends, family and living in a wonderful community. We are fortunate to live in a great part of the world, we have a fantastic climate, beautiful natural fauna and flora and a wonderful community.
It is an absolute honour to represent you and our Forde community. We are one of the fastest growing electorates in Queensland.
The Forde electorate takes in 419 square kilometres from Shailer Park in the North to Upper Coomera and Wongawallan in the South, Carbrook in the East to Boronia Heights in the West.
Only by standing up for the people of Forde in full witness of the decisions made in Canberra can we improve our lifestyle and our community, thereby creating a better future for the generations to come.
I am very proud of our electorate and I enjoy getting out and meeting as many of you as I can.
