Maiden Speech

I am honoured to have been elected to serve as the member for Wagga Wagga. I begin by acknowledging the traditional owners of the land on which the Parliament stands, and also the traditional owners of the land on which the electorate of Wagga Wagga is located—the Wiradjuri nation—and I pay tribute to elders past, present and emerging. The electorate of Wagga Wagga is located in south‑west New South Wales and in addition to Wagga Wagga incorporates the towns of Tumut, Batlow, Adelong, Lockhart, Uranquinty, The Rock, Yerong Creek, Collingullie, Currawarna, Ladysmith, Mangoplah, Pleasant Hills, Talbingo, Tarcutta and surrounding communities.
