Hi, I’m Meredith Hammat, your local Member for Mirrabooka. I live locally with my husband and two sons.
As the daughter of a sheep farmer and a nurse, I learned about hard work and the importance of community while growing up in Western Australia’s Great Southern region.
I've spent my career standing up for the rights of working Western Australians. I've fought for secure jobs and fairness for Western Australian workers for over 25 years – at the Australian Services Union and then as Secretary of UnionsWA. I've fought for secure jobs, affordable training opportunities, and quality local schools and hospitals.
As part of Western Australia's Labor Premier Mark McGowan's team, I am honoured to represent the electorate of Mirrabooka.
My priorities are: delivering jobs and a stronger local economy, access to health services, more support for small businesses, a safer community and more investment in local schools.
