Elizabeth Watson-Brown

MP-elect for Ryan

Hi, I'm Elizabeth and I'm your MP-elect for the seat of Ryan.

I was elected as MP for Ryan in the federal election on 21 May 2022. Right now, I'm setting up my new electorate office and assembling our team. I'll be sworn into Parliament during the first sitting week at the end of July 2022 and am looking forward to working together to create a better future for all of us. My portfolios will be Infrastructure, Transport and Sustainable Cities.

I’m a long-term resident of St Lucia and ran my own successful architectural practice in St Lucia and Auchenflower for 21 years. My career as an architect has focused on sustainable design of our built environments, greening our cities, urban resilience, accessibility, and social equity.

I believe that in a wealthy country like Australia, no one should be without a roof over their head, and that providing well designed housing for all is absolutely central to a viable economy and equitable society.

The Greens’ policy of making the billionaires and big corporations pay their fair share means we can afford quality public housing, free education, free childcare, free and Australian-made vaccines, and dental and mental health included in Medicare.

I can't wait to get into Parliament and fight for the Greens’ vision to transform the future of Australia in which real action on climate change is linked with the development of new, sustainable industries and jobs.
