This morning I attended the local office of the Australian Electoral Commission for the official declaration of the Polls for the Federal Division of Kooyong, confirming me as the Member for the Electorate.
I would like to thank my family for their support, the members of my team who have provided such great support and encouragement, and the 2,000+ volunteers who were a major part of our campaign to elect a
community independent to the seat of Kooyong.
I also want to thank the people of this electorate and let them know I am well aware of my responsibility for representing them to the best of my ability, and giving me the honour of being their elected member in Canberra.
We have a lot of work to do over the next three years, and now it is time to get started.
