Geoff Provest MP
100% for Tweed
Geoff Provest has been the Nationals State Member for Tweed since he defeated a Labor incumbent in 2007 and was re-elected in 2011 and 2015.
Geoff is known as “Mr 100 per cent for Tweed” in the NSW Parliament because of his fierce advocacy for the people he represents.
Notable achievements include the full duplication of the Pacific Highway through the Tweed electorate; a $48 million upgrade for the Tweed Hospital following earlier local health successes such as a new dental clinic, increasing nurse and specialist numbers and a new Health One medical centre for Pottsville; 90 extra police for the region and funding for a brand new Tweed Police Station; record funding for Tweed public schools including a $5 million boost for Pottsville Public School and unprecedented support for Tweed community groups.
Prior to his election, Geoff ran his own consultancy business, and before that he was the long-term general manager of the Tweed Heads Bowls Club.
He has chaired the Regional Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal, the Regional Clean-Up Australia Day Committee, Tweed Tourism and Tweed Neighbourhood Watch. As a result of Mr Provest’s work, the Tweed has one of the strongest Neighbourhood Watch networks in NSW with more than 800 members.
Mr Provest’s advocacy work for his constituents extends well beyond his State Government responsibilities, often helping people who have been unable to achieve satisfactory outcomes in their dealings with the federal government or the local council.
