As a local I was honoured to be first elected as the Member for Burt at the 2016 Federal Election.
Thank you for your support then and for entrusting me to be your representative in Canberra again at the 2019 election.
I'm so proud to be able to say that by working together with the Federal Labor team and my State Labor colleagues, so many of the things we have been fighting for in our community are now on track for delivery, including the duplication of Armadale Road, a new Armadale Road bridge at the Freeway, the extension of the Thornlie line through Canning Vale and the replacement of the Denny Avenue level crossing.
We have also forced the Government to deliver on the much needed Royal Commission into the Banks and the McGowan WA Labor Government has delivered on a 24/7 Armadale Police Station as well as extended hours for the Canning Vale Police Station.
I’m excited to have taken on the Shadow portfolio areas of Defence Industry and WA Resources, which are vitally important to WA and the nation as a whole. I also look forward to bringing a WA perspective to these portfolios as well as in assisting the Shadow Minister for Small & Family Business.
In all of these areas I will be focusing on building job opportunities as well as supporting businesses providing much needed employment opportunities and growth for our nation.
As your Federal MP, it’s my job to represent you in Canberra and I want to hear from you.
Please contact my office if I can ever be of assistance.
Matt Keogh MP
Shadow Minister for Defence Industry
Shadow Minister for WA Resources
