Meet Martha

Prior to entering Parliament, Martha spent her working life delivering affordable housing, employment support and better transport for rural and regional Victorians. Whilst working in the housing sector, she led successful grassroots campaigns for more social and affordable housing across Victoria that culminated in the Victorian Government’s $5.3 billion Big Housing Build project.

Martha believes in looking out for those in need and in striving to build a fairer community for all. As a proud country Victorian, Martha wanted to be a strong, no-nonsense voice for the rural and regional communities across Ripon. This is what prompted her to run for Parliament.

The main passions and priorities Martha has as a member of Parliament are to work hard to protect and strengthen the rural and regional healthcare system. Martha is passionate about building more affordable housing and expanding access to mental health services across the regions. Her priorities also include growing opportunities for young people, strengthening education and employment outcomes, and fixing roads across the Ripon electorate.
