Retirement announced

On 31 October 2019 I announced that I would not be standing for the seat of South Perth at the State Election in March 2021.

Liberal Party State Parliamentary Leader Liza Harvey made the official announcement to a media conference at Parliament House.

Leader Liza Harvey invites me to the microphone after announcing my intention to not contest the seat of South Perth in March 2021.

However, this doesn’t mean I have retired. There is still more than a year to keep representing South Perth and to fulfil my shadow portfolio duties in Racing & Gaming and Sport & Recreation.

The announcement provides the Liberal Party of WA the luxury of time to pre-select the best available candidate to further the work I have undertaken in the seat since 2005, when I took on a similar role after the celebrated career of the late Phil Pendal MLA.
