Some of my Priorities

Better Planning

I will take a holistic approach to the big infrastructure projects but concentrate on the cumulative impacts of each.

Traffic Congestion

Our arterial roads are clogged due to decades of poor planning and bickering between the major parties about solutions to the problem.

Sporting Facilities

There is a rising obesity problem among our kids. We need to get them more active and sports is just one way of doing so.

Environmental Issues

Coal-fired electricity generation should be phased out as soon as possible. This should be replaced by more renewable energy supplies, such as solar.

Government Waste

The Labor Government spent $82.3 million removing a level crossing on Kororoit Creek Road in Williamstown that was neither dangerous nor congested.


The 2018-19 Budget Capital Works document shows more than half the schools in the marginal Frankston electorate have been promised funding, yet less than a quarter of those in the safe seat of Williamstown are to receive any.

Why vote for Peter Hemphill?

It’s time to elect someone who has spent 20 years serving the community, knows your issues and has a history of taking solid action. I am there to represent the community, not follow a party line.

It’s time for change and Peter will campaign for the issues that truly matter to the Williamstown electorate. Peter is a hard working representative with 20 years’ experience serving the local community.

He has a history of understanding local issues and taking solid action. As an Independent candidate, he will focus on your needs and not toe a party line.

  • "I have known Peter for more than 15 years as a friend and as my council representative. We have worked together on a number of community initiatives, such as the Seaworks maritime project and local sporting facilities. That includes efforts to acquire the Mobil land at Maddox Road in Williamstown as a major sporting hub for western Melbourne. Peter works tirelessly for the benefit of his community."
