Palmer United Party state leader Kevin Morgan today announced three candidates to contest the seat of Lyons in the March election.
Derwent Valley Councillor Wayne Shoobridge, business owner Quentin von Stieglitz and Deloraine driving instructor Mark Grewar have joined the Tasmanian PUP team.
Mr Morgan said the Palmer United Party’s Lyons candidates were longstanding Tasmanian residents who were heavily involved in their local communities.
“Tasmania needs a State Government that will represent Tasmanians and create a brighter future for generations to come and the Palmer United Party is committed to making a difference,'' Mr Morgan said.
Federal leader of PUP Clive Palmer said he was impressed by the calibre of candidates and nominations the party had received for the upcoming election.
Candidates for Bass will be announced on Wednesday, and those contesting the southern seat of Denison will be announced tomorrow.
