Hodgman makes 5000-job promise

OPPOSITION Leader Will Hodgman promised 5000 jobs and a quick start to government at the Liberal Party campaign launch in Launceston this morning.

Mr Hodgman spoke in front of about 200 supporters, including candidates from across the state, at the launch at the Boathouse on Northbank.

Mr Hodgman promised the 5000 new jobs during a Liberal first term as a result of the party's policies.

He also released a plan for the first 100 days of his administration if he wins the March 15 poll.

He said the jobs would be created through a four-pronged jobs plan, that will include a $12 million regional infrastructure fund, payroll tax relief through a year-long extension of the existing tax rebate, a $1000 bonus for each job created by small business and a two-year waiver of headworks charges on developments.
