Adam Marshall is the Minister for Agriculture and Western New South Wales and proudly represents his local community as the Member for Northern Tablelands in the NSW Parliament.

Adam was elected Deputy Mayor in 2007 and then, at the age of 23, Mayor in 2008, a position he held until he stepped down from local government in 2012 to move to Armidale to study at the University of New England. During his time in local government, Adam also served as Chairman of the Namoi Regional Organisation of Councils (NamoiROC), Chairman of the NSW Country Mayors Association and Senior Vice President of Local Government NSW.
Elected to the NSW Parliament in 2013 and most recently in March 2019, Adam has previously served as Parliamentary Secretary for Renewable Energy and Northern NSW, before his elevation to Cabinet in January 2017 where he served as the Minister for Tourism and Major Events and Assistant Minister for Skills.
Adam recognises the important contribution made to our state by way of tourism and major events, and in particular regional communities, and looks forward to championing them on a larger scale.
