Biography

Hon Jim Chown MLC represents the Agricultural Region in the Western Australian Parliament. Having first been elected to the Legislative Council in 2008, Jim was re-elected in 2013 and in 2017.

Previously a farmer, it was Jim’s passion for the land and his understanding of challenges faced in the Agricultural Region which inspired him to enter Parliament, to represent and assist others in agricultural areas. This has allowed Jim to highlight and improve, within government, the needs and challenges faced by regional Western Australians and our State’s economy. 

An active Member across the Agricultural Region, and with great interest in his portfolio responsibilities, you are most welcome to contact Jim if you would like to discuss any suggestions that he can assist with.
