Alex is the Labor Candidate for the newly formed seat of Kellyville. He lives in Bella Vista with his wife and son who attends a local primary school in The Hills.
Alex is a Transport Planning & Traffic Engineer and holds a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) and a Masters by Research (Transport Planning) from the University of New South Wales. The traffic congestion and infrastructure are a major issue for Hills residents and is further deteriorating due to poor planning and inappropriate development based on his experience as a local resident and the volume of communications he is receiving. As a Traffic Engineer who has worked for NSW Transport on the Sydney Metro Project & Sydney Light Rail, Parramatta Light Rail the first step in dealing with the current traffic congestion and safety is to effectively optimise our traffic network by signalised intersection, cap our toll road costs and implement critical road safety upgrades.
On the Health front Alex is excited to announce that Labor will invest $700 million into the Rouse Hill Hospital which more than doubles the promises made by the Liberal Government since 2014. As a local resident and a parent, Alex understands the issues faced by people in the Kellyville electorate. He is running for State Parliament to make a difference for his local community to ensure they have a strong local voice. Alex knows that cost-of-living pressures are increasing and firmly believes that only a Minns Labor Government will deliver on issues that matter to local residents, including:
• Proper planning & sustainable development;
• Road & Traffic Management plan to ease congestion across The Hills
• Addressing school overcrowding and providing more support for our teaching staff;
• Vastly improved healthcare system and building a local hospital that has been delayed for years but which the Hills community desperately needs;
• Ensuring community services keep pace with our growing population in The Hills.
Alex believes that locals have been taken for granted for too long and it’s time to elect someone in Kellyville who will stand up for locals on the issues that matter to them and be accountable to the electorate.
