Jayson Hinder was elected as an MLA for Ginninderra on the 3rd of March 2016. He was elected on the casual vacancy created by Mary Porter, and aims to continue her work in fighting for government outcomes which benefit the community.
Jayson Hinder’s story is different to most people who run for political office. He’s a true local MLA who has served our community and built a career around fighting for others.
Jayson was born in Canberra and was raised by his widowed mother while attending local schools and colleges. Originally an apprentice mechanic by trade, Jayson went on to start his own workshop. While running his small business and raising three kids, Jayson took night courses at university to work towards his law degree. He went on to practice in law in firms around the ACT and founded his own law firm, Jayson Hinder and Associates, which still serves the people of Belconnen and Gunghalin. Drawing on these experiences, he now serves the people of Belconnen and Gunghalin as a Member of the Legislative Assembly.
Jayson has managed many successful businesses over the course of his career. He has also led the Bendigo Community Bank, which actively fundraises for and supports local community causes. In addition to being a member of multiple community and sporting organisations, he has been a Labor member for decades and knows that Labor priorities in jobs, infrastructure and education offer the best future for his community.
He currently lives in Giralang with his wife Lisa and three kids. In his spare time he spends time with his family, plays rugby and works on cars and motorcycles.
Jayson is actively outlining his plans for more jobs and better services in the community. He is here to help and prides himself on being available to his constituents.
