Christine Tonkin
WA Labor Candidate for Churchlands

Hi, I’m Christine Tonkin and I am your local Labor Candidate for Churchlands at the 2021 State Election.

The place I call home is in Wembley where I've lived since the late 1980s, in the same street that my grandparents lived in.

I’m an expert in public procurement reform and have worked in this field for over 25 years in Queensland, for the United Nations, and as an international consultant. Not work that's easy to explain to my grandchildren!

I'm running because Premier Mark McGowan put our health first, and did everything he could to keep WA safe. It’s meant our economy is now in a position to recover stronger than ever.

An old friend once told me that we have two ears and one mouth and should do twice as much listening as talking. I am committed to listening to the people of Churchlands and reflecting your concerns and aspirations in the McGowan Labor team. Please get in touch!
