Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you will find some useful information about my work in the Page electorate, local media releases and my parliamentary speeches.

A big thank you for all the lovely messages and for your support over the last six years. It’s been my privilege to serve the people of Page and when I got elected I set a standard of service I believed people deserve of not only getting things done ( which I did) but ethical behaviour and our community now expects that. those who come after me will have to do the same

I loved every minute and will continue to serve our community in some way. I’m staying active in politics because its my passion.

I congratulated Mr Hogan on election night and like the rest of the community i look forward to him making my life easier ( as he promised), lowering my bills ( as he promised) finishing the pacific highway with extra money that he promised (and broke before he was elected) and I look with interest to see how he stops the boats (as he promised but not my position) and how many more jobs he can create (as he promised) more than 5000 I created in this area in six years, and get the economy here moving again ( as he promised) considering that as I leave office it is the second fastest growing economy in regional NSW and how he’s going to ensure what the coalition calls ‘stable government’ when Joe Hockey said the Nationals were irrelevant and had no influence, and senior Nats Fiona Nash and Warren Truss joined in the bunfight and how is Kevin Hogan going to stop Tony Abbott winding back the water trigger legislation on CSG and handing all environmental approvals back to NSW as they have vowed to do. Crossing the floor won’t make one iota of difference. advocacy counts and he said when asked about the coalition’s intentions, ‘oh, that’s the liberals, I’m in the Nationals’.

I feel much better now having said all that. and back to you good people, thanks heaps. Janelle.
