Media Statement: Significant Changes to the Hume Electorate - Monday 17th June 2024

Tuesday, 18 June 2024

The proposed electoral redistribution announced by the AEC on Friday will change my electorate of Hume significantly.


Under the AEC proposal, Goulburn Mulwaree Council will transition into the Eden Monaro electorate, the seat of Whitlam will expand to embrace all of the Southern Highlands, and Upper Lachlan Shire Council and Boorowa will shift into the Riverina electorate.


I would like to note that the boundary changes are not yet finalised and won’t be until October 10.


Under AEC rules if a Federal Election was to be held before this, the old Hume electorate boundaries would remain.


It is an honour and privilege to represent these communities and I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved over the last ten years.


I will continue to work hard to represent my constituents as we take the fight to Labor ahead of the next election.


Under Labor, Australians have been left poorer. We are facing a deadly combination of high inflation and household recession because the Albanese Labor Government can’t manage money.


Meanwhile crucial infrastructure spending has been lost in regional and outer suburban areas like Hume.


Australians deserve better.


A Peter Dutton led Coalition will get Australian back on track.
