Rob MolhoekState Member for Southport

How can I help you?

As your State Member, I’m here to assist you with issues like health, education, roads and housing. My office also provides a number of services such as a Justice of the Peace, photocopying for organisations and school & community trips to Queensland Parliament House.

I’m regularly out and about in the Southport electorate and look forward to seeing you soon at one of my listening posts!

I’m working for:

More local jobs and opportunity

I believe a job brings hope and purpose, which is why I’m working towards more permanent jobs on the Gold Coast

Reduced crime and more police

The former government’s tough stance on law and order issues had a significant impact on the Gold Coast, from increased police on the beat to tougher penalties for the worst sexual offenders.

Extension of the light rail

The connection of the light rail to the heavy rail is the single most important infrastructure project for our city.

Brighter and better schools

We need to ensure local principals and school communities are given the tools they need to make the best decisions for their own schools.

Improved health services

I’m working closely with Gold Coast Health to address issues raised by constituents and attract the best & brightest minds to the Gold Coast for medical research.

    From a Southport perspective we are very fortunate to have a local member who is so passionate about driving investment in the region and growing business opportunities and therefore jobs and apprenticeships.

Labor want to wind back the laws we introduced to deal with criminal gangs. They obviously have little regard for the safety of our kids and families or the fragility of our tourism industry. Should we go soft on drug dealers, extortionists and criminal gangs? Should we retain mandatory sentences for repeat offenders and gang leaders? See MoreSee Less
