Mr Paul Mercurio

Paul Mercurio

Meet Paul

Prior to entering Parliament, Paul worked in the entertainment industry starting out as a contemporary ballet dancer, then working as a choreographer, an actor and TV presenter. He has also had a diverse career in the food space being a brewer, cook and restaurateur.  

After becoming a Councillor for the Mornington Peninsula Shire and being frustrated by being unable to help the community in the manner needed, Paul decided to run for Parliament to better help the community.  

The main passions and priorities Paul has as a member of Parliament is to do more for the performing arts community which in turn has incredible benefits for youth, and for mental and psychical health. Paul is also passionate about improving public transport to create jobs, economic uplift, and opportunities to all members of the community.
