Meet Michelle Rowland MP

I’m proud to have been your Federal Member for Greenway for almost 14 years.

I was born and went to primary school locally. My very first job was as a check-out operator at a supermarket in Blacktown.

In 1990, I met my husband Michael while studying law at Sydney University. We got married not long after our graduation.

I practised as a lawyer in the communications industry, specialising in telecommunications and media law. It’s one of my great passions, which is why it’s a privilege to now serve as Minister for Communications. This portfolio has the power to change lives – from unlocking new opportunities, supporting small businesses and bringing communities together.

Before I was elected to represent you in the Federal Parliament, I served as Deputy Mayor of Blacktown City Council.

Michael and I are very lucky to be parents to two daughters, Octavia and Aurelia.

Just like all parents, we want the very best for our kids. We want them to have better lives and more opportunities than we ever had.

And I know that’s something the good people of Greenway aspire for as well.

That’s why I’ll never stop fighting for quality schools and hospitals, cheaper medicines, cost of living support for families, improved infrastructure and better quality services in North West Sydney.

These are priorities the Albanese Labor Government understands – and why we’re a Government that’s on your side.
