Josh Burns is Labor’s Federal MP for Macnamara, previously the seat of Melbourne Ports.
Born and raised in Caulfield, Josh is the grandson of Jewish migrants who left Europe and settled in Melbourne in search of a safe place to raise their families. From their experiences, Josh has learnt the importance of upholding a multicultural and multifaith Australia, and the profound role education can play in changing lives.
After attending Mount Scopus College, Josh graduated from Monash University with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Political Studies. Josh has previously worked as a teacher’s aide and a factory hand, and served as a Senior Adviser to the Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews.
Josh and his wife Zoe live locally, where they are raising their beautiful baby daughter, Tia.
As a new parent, Josh wants to make sure that every child gets every opportunity in life.
And as a local, he’s proud to serve and stand up for the needs of our community.
