It’s been an absolute privilege to have represented the electors of Lyons for a good number of years to date!
It’s a beautiful electorate, essentially a collection of many vibrant communities, all with a clear idea of how they want to maintain a lifestyle.
I am often asked how I go about servicing the relatively massive size of the Lyons electorate and I always point out that, while I spend much of my time driving, it is through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and I never tire of the privilege of working with the communities within it.
If Tasmania is to rebuild following the last devastating years we are going to need a majority Government, which means a Government which has not sold its agenda to a minority party. Only the Liberals are in a position to provide that.
Much of the horsepower to drive the rebuilding of Tasmania will come from within the Lyons electorate from our hard-working entrepreneurs in the primary industry and resource sectors.
The communities that support and work in these sectors in the electorate of Lyons deserve at least their fair share of health, education and human services and I will continue to advocate very strongly for them.
While offering the electors the benefits of my now substantial experience in the electorate and in the Parliament, I am delighted to advise that I am still fit and strong and very excited at the chance to change the Government to a majority Hodgman Liberal Government which has a strong plan to achieve the necessary rebuilding of the Tasmanian economy and jobs!
