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.

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.

The outbreak of COVID-19 in Victoria is of grave concern. After speaking to Premier Dan Andrews yesterday, I have agreed to send 800 more support staff there to help combat the jump in cases. They’ll help with testing, contact tracing, community engagement and door knocking. We can leave no stone unturned and no resource unapplied when it comes to this virus. We’ve seen how quickly and easily it spreads and we stand united in our fight against it. I also urge Victorians, and all Australians, to continue following the health advice. That is: 1️⃣ Practice good hygiene - wash your hands regularly and thoroughly. 2️⃣ Maintain physical distancing - stay 1.5m away from other people, wherever possible. 3️⃣ If you’re even slightly sick, stay at home and if you have any symptoms at all, no matter how mild, get tested.
