Before entering Parliament, Paul worked as a firefighter and teacher. Paul felt that the Frankston community needed to be prioritised by state government in funding revitalisation opportunities for education, health, public transport, and other sectors.
Paul was prompted to run for Parliament out of a commitment for Frankston and a passion to ensure Frankston was able to access the tools, via good representation at a state government level, to ensure the community met its full potential.
In his time as the Member for Frankston he has delivered record funding in schools, TAFE, Public Transport, and mental health, improving all sectors for the community.
“Frankston, as the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula, needs to rapidly grow to provide the services of the major CBD”.
Paul’s vision for Victoria’s future is that it maintains its status as the backbone of Australia’s economy, be known on the international stage as progressive socially and industrially, with successful local industry, tourism, and international events.
The areas of public policy that he is most passionate about are education, health, and rolling out the Victorian Royal Commission into Mental Health recommendations and social housing.
