Member for Ginninderra
Tara was elected into the ACT Legislative Assembly in 2016 and is a passionate advocate for Canberra, particularly for her home of Belconnen.
Prior to her election, Tara held numerous community and local leadership roles, including Chair of the Belconnen Community Council and Secretary of the Belconnen Arts Centre Board.
She has a long history volunteering with Radio 1RPH – which she continues while holding her role as MLA – and as a Tournament of Minds judge. Tara is also well known for her popular blog - In The Taratory - which promotes all things Canberra.
As a community leader and Town Centre resident, Tara has a strong understanding of the key issues facing Belconnen - from its economy to its identity and growth. Tara is committed to ensuring Belconnen remains one of the most liveable places in the world - one which has the services, the connectedness and the sense of community to continue to thrive.
In addition to actively supporting her community, Tara is also the Government Whip.
