Alan was born and raised in Canberra. Alan has lived most of his life in the Belconnen district where he, and his wife, have raised two children who went to school in Scullin and Hawker. A top ranked rover, Alan left to play AFL in Adelaide and in Melbourne for St Kilda. He played in three premierships for the Ainslie AFL Club and was named in the ACT Team Of the Century.
Alans roots are here in Canberra, and he cares about Belconnen and Canberra. He has a strong sporting background, and is a team player. The Labor/Green Government has made life very difficult for the residents of Canberra with skyrocketing rates. They have reduced bus services. The city has been allowed to become shabby and neglected. The inner city elites have taken over at the expense of the everyday man and woman of Belconnen. He is one of those everyday men. He has had enough.
Alan has grown children and lives in Belconnen.
