Biography

Hon Liza Harvey MLA

Minister for Police; Tourism; Road Safety; Women's Interests

 

Liza Harvey represents the electorate of Scarborough in the Western Australian Legislative Assembly, having been elected at the 2008 General Election.

 

Born in Manjimup, Liza is the third of six children and a fifth generation Western Australian. Her father is a surveyor, which meant Liza and her siblings travelled around the State during their childhood, with the majority of their time spent living in the Pilbara and Kimberley regions. She has lived in Scarborough for the last 20 years and is a small business owner employing over 50 Western Australians.

 

As a business owner and an active member in her local community, Liza is acutely aware of the importance of law and order and community safety, both of which are of high priority to the people of Western Australia.

 

She was appointed Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Finance; Commerce; Small Business in December 2010 and was promoted to the position of Minister for Police and Road Safety in June 2012.

 

She is married to Hal and is mother to Elizabeth and Jack, stepmother to Sarah and grandmother to Riley.
