The Federal Electorate of Cowan represents the kind and generous community of Perth’s northern suburbs. Cowan lies east of Lake Joondalup and the Mitchell Freeway – spanning from Tapping in the north; Ballajura and Whiteman Park in the east; to Warwick, Girrawheen and parts of Beechboro and Lockridge in the south.
It’s an area of Perth defined by its friendly families, active local volunteers, and a community that looks out for each other. But Cowan suffers from shocking internet coverage, a lack of Government services, and a need for job creation and security. Cowan needs a Federal Government that will take our outer suburbs seriously.
Cowan needs the sorts of policies that Labor took to the election: a secure Medicare; a Gonski needs-based funding model for our local schools; more apprenticeships for our young people; quality NBN that will provide the technology and jobs for our future; and forward-thinking infrastructure that will last generations.
Cowan covers the suburbs of: Alexander Heights, Ashby, Ballajura, Beechboro (part), Bennett Springs, Cullacabardee, Darch, Girrawheen, Gnangara, Greenwood, Hocking, Jandabup, Kiara (part), Kingsley (part), Koondoola, Landsdale, Lockridge (part), Madeley, Malaga, Marangaroo, Pearsall, Sinagra, Tapping, Wangara, Wanneroo, Warwick, and Whiteman.
“The electorate of Cowan, like all of the outer suburban electorates of Australia's major cities, represents the best of our country. And if the outer suburbs represent our new demographic heartland, it is a warm and trusting heart indeed.”
Anne Aly, First Speech, 12 September, 2016
