Shadow Minister for Local Government; Heritage; Culture and Arts; Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs
Member for Carine
As a local Member of Parliament, Tony Krsticevic knows the value of hard work, respect and positive belief in the individual’s freedom to succeed. Raised in a working class family, these values were a fundamental platform during his childhood. Tony’s parents came to Australia with no more than the shirts on their backs and hearts full of hopes and dreams. Since the beginning, Tony’s father always taught him that “hard and honest work” will reap you the “benefits of a happy and prosperous life.” He also said that “everything in life worth having is worth working hard for.” After completing a Bachelor of Business with a major in Accounting and Computing, Tony worked for the Australian Taxation Office for 20 years.
Tony believes that families play a crucial role in the success of any community. Raising three children, he continues to encourage them to work hard, get a good education and become actively involved in the local community. Tony’s children serve as a constant reminder when he works with our Premier Colin Barnett in fighting for better local infrastructure in the electorate of Carine.
Tony has always been involved in community work. Whether it be coaching the local soccer team to being a committee member for a range of groups, he thoroughly enjoys the contribution that every individual can make to their local neighbourhood.
Hard work, respect and a positive attitude will lead to a strong local community. Ever since being elected as our local Member of Parliament, these goals have been what drives Tony to work with our local community to make our area an even greater place to live and work. Tony will continue to work with the Government to tackle the problems of hoons, graffiti and other anti-social behaviour, as well as ensuring that our schools receive important funding and that our beautiful parklands and environmentally-sensitive areas are protected for future generations.
