Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott today congratulated Mitchell MP Alex Hawke on his appointment to the position of Assistant Minister to the Treasurer in the Federal Government.
Mr Elliott said there was now a record level of Ministerial representation in the Hills District.
“The Hills District is home to four Parliamentary seats, with three of those electorates now represented in the State and Federal Governments,” Mr Elliott said.
“The construction of the Sydney North West Metro, the Norwest Business Park, the Box Hill and Marsden Park growth centres and the continuing development of Parramatta as a second CBD demonstrate the importance of this region.
“Alex has served the Mitchell electorate with enthusiasm and energy since his election in 2007 and his promotion is well deserved.
“He will bring great small business nous to Treasury from his experience representing an area with one of the largest small business communities in the nation.”
