Biography

Sussan Ley’s career path has been wonderfully varied, working odd jobs on the way to a pilot’s license – with roles as an air traffic controller, stock-mustering pilot and occasional shearer’s cook following.

While raising three children on a family farm, ten years study led to a senior position at the Australian Taxation Office before entering federal politics in 2001.

Serving the rural NSW electorate of Farrer since 2001, Sussan has also been allocated responsibility in several portfolio and policy areas, most recently as Assistant Minister for Regional Development and Territories.

Sussan regards it as an honour to represent regional Australia, making time to regularly travel through her electorate and around the country listening to the views and concerns of constituents.

#BREAKING: Deeply sad to report it’s been confirmed two Australians were killed in the Sri Lankan Easter Sunday terrorist attack yesterday. The two Australians were from the same family & were living in Sri Lanka. I can also confirm two other Australian citizens were injured in the attacks. They have received medical treatment for their injuries and are recovering. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of those who have passed away and the injured.
