The new electorate of Hawke was created to cater to Melbourne’s rapidly growing north-west.

Hawke includes the suburbs of Sunbury, Diggers Rest, Bulla, Melton, Bacchus Marsh, Ballan, Blackwood and surrounds.

The communities of Hawke have so much to offer, but families are doing it tough. The extraordinary rate of growth is putting infrastructure under pressure. We need decent, well-paid local jobs. Our kids deserve access to great schools, and our loved ones need to access world-class healthcare whenever they need it.

Sam has put his hand up to represent Hawke because he wants to address these challenges and build a stronger region for local families.
