Biography

Alex was elected at the 2007 election as the Federal Member for Mitchell, an electorate centred on the Hills Shire in Northwest Sydney.

In September 2015, Alex was appointed as the Assistant Minister to the Treasurer. Following the 2016 Federal Election Alex was appointed the Assistant Minister for Immigration and Border Protection. Due to the establishment of the Home Affairs Portfolio in late 2017, Alex was appointed the Assistant Minister for Home Affairs. On 27 August 2018, Alex was officially sworn in as the Special Minister of State in the first Morrison Government.

Alex was also a member of the House Standing Committee on Education and Employment and the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade.

The Mitchell electorate is changing rapidly, with many young families moving into expanding suburbs. Our community has so many innovative small and medium enterprises and their prosperity will be a core priority for the Morrison Government. Alex is also an advocate for reducing the size and scope of government and ongoing reduction of red and green tape for small and medium businesses.

Alex holds a Masters of Government and Public Affairs and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Sydney University. He has also served as an Army Reserve Officer. Alex has a deep interest in Australian history, is a strong supporter of the Parramatta Eels and the Western Sydney Wanderers.

Raised in Sydney’s North Western suburbs, Alex, his wife Amelia and their sons, Jack, Lachlan and Thomas, reside in Mitchell.

Anthony Albanese has still not learnt the lessons of Labor’s policy failures and the need for a consistent approach on border protection.

Did you know 28% of child sex offenders sentenced in Australia last year did not serve one day in jail? That’s just not OK, not even close and it has to change. These offenders are the lowest of the low and we’re going to ensure they go to jail with new mandatory sentencing laws. We owe it to our kids to protect them. What’s more, the most serious offenders could be jailed for life under our new laws we’re going to introduce to Parliament next week.
