Nola Marino MP
Member for Forrest
Nola was elected as the Federal Member for the seat of Forrest on November 24, 2007.
During the first Parliamentary sitting of 2008, she was appointed to the position of Deputy Opposition Whip and was also part of an Australian United Nations delegation to observe the elections in Cambodia later in the year.
On the 27 September 2015, Nola was appointed to the position of Chief Government Whip.
She has been able to speak up for Forrest by investigation and developing policy areas which would be of benefit to her constituents.
There has been a big win for regional families by Nola when she led the way to help reverse Labor’s cuts to Youth Allowance access. This was of great assistance to families with children who wanted to pursue their education dreams beyond high school.
She is currently the Chief Government Whip and on the House of Representatives’ Standing Committees:
• Infrastructure and Communications
• and is a member of Coalition backbench committees:
• Infrastructure and regional development.
This year she was appointed as convener for the Australia-South and Central Asia Parliamentary Network of the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
Nola enjoys spending time with family and friends, AFL football, cooking, music, reading and walking. She believes in hard work and getting on with the job.
