APPOINTMENT AS SHADOW ASSISTANT MINISTERS FOR CLIMATE CHANGE AND INFRASTRUCTURE

I am honoured to be appointed to the positions of Shadow Assistant Minister for Climate Change and Shadow Assistant Minister for Infrastructure.

With over a decade of experience in climate change and clean energy policy development, I look forward to supporting the already extensive work of Mark Butler in the Climate Change portfolio.

As a Hunter MP, I am acutely aware of how critical it is to properly manage the transition to a carbon constrained economy. Australia must meet its commitment to curb carbon emissions and limit global temperature rises in the most economically efficient and socially just manner. Labor has and must continue to drive the agenda for meaningful action.

As an economist I understand how critical adequate, well planned and intelligently financed infrastructure is to a modern, growing economy. I am genuinely excited about the opportunity to work with Anthony Albanese, Stephen Jones and Warren Snowden in this policy area. It is a privilege to work with Anthony Albanese who has driven the nation’s infrastructure policy development from both Government and Opposition.

I am grateful to the Leader of the Opposition, Bill Shorten, for appointing me to these roles, and am proud of Labor's outstanding record in both areas.
