Member for Eyre
Candidate for Roe
Growing up from a rural background, Graham attended school in Esperance and then graduating from The University of Western Australia as a Doctor in 1975. Soon after graduating University, he returned to Esperance where he established his 30 Year career as a country GP cementing his credentials as a primary care giver to the community. This contribution to the community was carried through in 2005 when he was elected as our local Member of Parliament.
Graham believes that family plays an important role in creating the foundations for a successful community. His wife Kathryn, a qualified midwife and a long distance runner extraordinaire, has always been extremely supportive of and passionate about his medical and now political career. Graham and Kathryn have always tried to instil strong family values in their five children, who are now adults. These values which Graham brings with him to Parliament enable him to make the right decisions, and the tough choices throughout his career as Minister and as our local Member.
After enjoying many years as a physician, surgeon, obstetrician and family counsellor, Graham wanted to use his extensive experience in rural living and doctoring to make a difference for our local community in State Parliament. As our MP, Graham will continue to strongly represent the people of Eyre on important local issues such as crime, hospitals, schools, roads, power, water and affordable housing.
