Upgrades to roads in regional areas is an issue I am continually campaigning for, so I was thrilled to hear more than $250 million of road safety upgrades will be rolled out across about 4000kms of regional WA roads this financial year.
This includes $75 million of upgrades in my electorate which will reduce the risk of road crashes and support local jobs.
Key projects funded in OConnor included:
- $9.5m for upgrades to Albany Highway
- $2.2m for Brockman Highway
- $14.9m for Great Eastern Highway
- $870,000 for Muir Highway
- $3.1m for South Coast Highway

Dementia is one of Australia’s biggest health challenges and its estimated there are between 400,000 and 459,000 Australians living with the disease today, and that number grows each year.
The Morrison Government is investing $44 million for programs providing support, training and education for services and individuals caring for people living with dementia. 
The programs deliver support and advice – including clinical support, assessments, recommendations for care interventions, mentoring and capacity building – to family and informal carers, primary and acute care staff and aged care service providers.

It’s always great to offer encouragement to locals who put their hand up to represent their community in State Parliament. 
Marie O’Dea is the Liberal candidate for Warren-Blackwood and has served her community for many years in many capacities. 
Marie popped into my new Albany office and outlined her hectic schedule in the lead up to the election. 
Marie has been out-and-about this week in Manjimup and Pemberton, and will be at Gate-to-Plate and Grapes and Gallops in Mt Barker over this weekend.

Best of luck Marie.

Haven’t seen Marie in Manjimup past Rick. Maybe you can explain to her where we are.

I was inspired to run for Parliament following my involvement in a decade-long campaign to deregulate the wheat industry, which brought about the end of the Australia Wheat Board’s monopoly.

“I stand proudly for the Liberal philosophy of free markets, vigorous competition, small government and individual responsibility. These are the principles that guide me in my life and in this place. My track record in public life shows clearly that I am prepared to stand up for those principles.”

“To the electors of O'Connor, I reiterate the commitment that I have made to work tirelessly on your behalf, to always be frank and honest about the challenges we face, and to work cooperatively and collaboratively to improve the lives of the people who live in the greatest part of the greatest nation on earth”

– Rick Wilson MP Maiden Speech.
