A local who delivers...


Deb and her husband moved to the Coast 28 years ago, and they have never moved away. They have raised their children Caitlin, Brianna and Noah in Bensville and Copacabana. Deb and her family are proud to call the Coast their home.  



Before becoming a NSW Senator, Deb worked as a lecturer at the University of Newcastle Central Coast Campus and a teacher in local schools. Deb and her husband also built a family business that has provided jobs for local people for over 20 years. 



Deb believes that your views matter. Since becoming our MP in 2010 and now as a Senator, Deb has been out in our community speaking with locals and listening to their concerns. Deb has knocked on thousands of local doors and held mobile offices across her electorate. Deb loves working hard to represent you in Parliament and delivering for the Coast.  


Since becoming an MP, and now as a Senator, Deb has been working hard to improve local hospitals and health facilities. Deb is proud to have delivered over $57 million in funding for new health facilities locally, including a lifesaving cancer clinic at Gosford Hospital, a GP Super Clinic in West Gosford and the new rehab clinic at Woy Woy Hospital


Deb is proud to have delivered upgrades to every local school as well as the Umina playground precinct and a fence to protect our kids at Fisherman’s Wharf in Woy Woy. As our local MP Deb has also delivered CCTV cameras in Terrigal and Umina CBDs, and an early rollout of the National Broadband Network in Gosford, Point Clare, Tascott, Koolewong, Springfield, Kariong, West Gosford and Erina. 




Deb is determined to keep working for you. She fought for and recently won $400 million to help build the F3-M2 link and $195.8 million
to widen the exits of the F3 at Kariong
, so that local commuters have more time with their family. Deb is now fighting for a full rollout
of the National Broadband Network
to bring jobs and opportunity
to the Coast, to protect our local environment and to secure more funding for local schools to ensure every child has the best start in life.

I youdon’tne of the lucky ones who’s front yard and driveway have been ruined by sub standard contractors installing new nbn pit’s and infrastructure.I live on Avoca Drive and quite frankly do not support this nbn roll out scheme in the hope of getting a faster internet service. I find it extremely concerning that just about all of the streets adjacent to avoca drive don’t even have footpaths but yet millions of tax payers dollar’s will spent on this nbn scheme that will more than likely not work for everyone the way it’s been sold to us or should I say forced on us.Most people are aware that they will have to pay a pretty fee to nbn to keep there phone line regardless of if they want it or not. Apart from the massive inconvenience and now a battle with doggy contractors to fix my driveway front yard I was told yesterday by a property valuation expert that my property is now worth anywhere between 75k and 100k less because of the intruding nbn infrastructure that now seems to be part of my property. So I say to you Deborah,gosford city council and other’s that feel it’s such a necessity to have a faster but unreliable internet service thanks for ruining my house I reckon if nbn did what they have done to my home to yours you probably wouldn’t be supporting this scheme. This is just simply a waste of tax payers money there is no notice to residents a completely arrogant attitude by the companys actually carrying out the work and they are not even doing it properly and have had to dig up my driveway front yard twice already, they attempted a third time just last week I was lucky enough to be at home this time and refused them access. Keep up with caring for your community Deb it’s senators like you we dont need on the coast as for coucil opening up there suburbs with open arms to nbn it’s no surprise I wonder if any money was exchanged to have suburbs on the Central Coast used as nbn test dummies. Matt from Avoca Drive Kincumber utterly disgusted!
