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 because he did not want to just talk about making a better Frankston but wanted to work to make it happen.
The priorities Paul has for his community are to ensure more housing, better health services, better schools, CBD revitalisation and reliable public transport. He says that 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. It should 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 the police and emergency service sectors, education, rolling out the Victorian Royal Commission into Mental Health recommendations and social housing.
