About Michael Pettersson

About Michael Pettersson Main Image

I’m Michael and I live in Crace.  

I was first elected to the ACT Legislative Assembly in 2016 and I was re-elected in 2020.

I'm passionate about making Canberra an even better place to live. I believe the best way do to that is by putting people first and helping working people to organise in their community. Before I joined the Assembly, I worked to protect the workplace rights of local construction workers at the CFMEU and served as an elected official of the National Union Students where I advocated for the welfare of students across Australia. 

In my spare time I like to keep active by mountain biking with friends, practicing yoga or playing tennis.

I never miss an episode of my favourite TV show 'Survivor'.
