A message from Chris

Belconnen is a wonderful dynamic community that I'm working to make even better.

As part of the ACT Labor Government, I'm getting results for Belconnen families, small businesses and communities. ACT Labor is determined to deliver quality services and an economic development agenda, keeping Canberra ticking over in the face of Federal Government cutbacks. 

I'm a proud Belconnen local. I've raised a family here, run a small business as a dentist in Canberra for 16 years and since 2011 I’ve had the honour of representing Belconnen in the ACT Legislative Assembly. 

I'm proud to be part of a progressive Labor government under Chief Minister Andrew Barr and to be independent of party factions.

Please contact me about your ideas and concerns, join my contact list, or perhaps volunteer your time.
