I will be blogging on a range of issues that I deal with as Chief Minister, Minister for Health, Minister for Regional Development and Minister for Higher Education, and as a local member representing the people of Molonglo.

Please remember that that this is a public forum so be respectful in your comments. Thanks for taking the time to visit and I look forward to having a great conversation with you and hearing your views and concerns.
