    Senator for South Australia

More About Stirling

My colleagues and I look forward to being a strong voice for South Australia. We're all about taking a common sense approach to issues and not being driven by political ideologies.

We believe that government and elected members should be there for the people, and not their own self interests.

My Portfolios

Health

High quality, easily accessible health care is a fundamental right for all Australians.

Ageing

Australia is a prosperous country built on the contribution of older Australians. Our ageing population deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. 

Local Government

Local government plays a necessary and important role in Australia's system of government but it must do so in an efficient and effective manner. 

We must ensure that local government is fully accountable to the public, that services aren't duplicated at other levels of government, and that these services are delivered quickly and efficiently.

Small Business

As Australia's largest employing sector, small business makes a significant contribution to Australia's economy. 

Upcoming portfolio legislation/Inquiries:

 

Tourism

Tourism is growing three times faster than the Australian economy, and every tourist dollar generates 87 cents in other parts of the economy. 

South Australia must continue to strive to meet its tourism targets, and ensure that it increases its share of national visitors. We must also refocus tourism and the arts to contribute to the vibrancy of regional Australia.
