Member for North West Central
Opposition Whip in the Legislative Assembly

Hi, I’m Merome Beard, but most people call me Mem. I’m your Nationals WA Member for the North West Central by-election.
My family and I have a long connection to the region, and we call Carnarvon home. It’s where my husband and I run our business the Port Hotel for nearly 20 years, raised our kids and volunteered in the community.
As a fourth generation local, raised in the region and a proud School of the Air graduate – I know first hand what makes this region great. Whether you live in the Gascoyne, the Pilbara or the Murchison, I understand the issues, challenges and opportunities across North West Central.
The Labor Government is failing to tackle important issues to you such as health services, crime, housing, staff shortages and the cost pressures of doing business and living.
Meanwhile they’ve decimated regional representation in Parliament and under spent in regional WA, all while boasting a $5.7 billion budget surplus.
I’m privileged to continue the fight in Parliament on your behalf.
