Matt is married to an infection control specialist and he is proud to have been the main carer to their two young boys whilst also working for the last 3 years as a City of Rockingham Councillor (ward area being Baldivis). Matt lives in Settlers Hills in Baldivis (having previously lived in the Ridge estate, Rivergums estate, Cooloongup and Warnbro).
Matt is 40 years old, moved from the UK 15 years ago and has been a WA Police officer, Manager, a small business owner and even a Cruise Director many moons ago!!
Matt coaches various sporting teams, works closely with the P+C's, offers support to the not for profits in the area and works tirelessly on a near full time basis for the community whilst honouring his pledge to give his $30,000 a year City allowance back to the community.
Matt believes that People Power really does work and is proud of his role in the extra mobile phone coverage that is coming this year, the upgrades to the local fire brigade that will benefit the community, the creation of a Baldivis Newsletter and website (www.baldivisnow.com.au) and the massive focus of new facilities and infrastructure in Baldivis. Matt is proud of his part in securing more effective security, more off leash dog parks, more focus for the Children's forest as well as free community events through the volunteer run group 'Baldivis Events'
Matt is not afraid to speak out, to challenge where necessary and to fight for common sense results and has assisted hundreds of residents whilst also working to save ratepayers money and striving for more business and employment support.
Matt is not one of those 'career politicians' , he has life experience but decided to enter politics as he wanted to make a difference locally. In order to do that he realised that he should be a City Councillor so he ran a small , last minute campaign, as a independent in Rockingham in 2013 in order to build up some experience and profile to try and become a Councillor.
Matt has met all of the other candidates and they are all great, well meaning people and he wishes them all the best and he looks forward to a clean, healthy, robust campaign.
