The Tasmanian Labor party has announced the endorsement of Alison Standen and Daniel Hulme to join the Tasmanian Labor Senate ticket for the upcoming federal election.
Devonport based Senator Anne Urquhart will lead the Tasmanian Labor Senate ticket at the number one position, with Launceston-based Senator Helen Polley endorsed at the number two position.
Senator Polley said that she was delighted to be preselected in the senate ticket, saying that healthcare was one of the biggest issues facing Tasmania.
"I will keep fighting everyday until every Tasmanian has been vaccinated, for an affordable health system that Tasmanians can rely on, for no more cuts to Medicare and aged care and more support for Tasmanian industry including our tourism and hospitality sectors as they rebuild from the pandemic" she said.
Former State Franklin MP Alison Standen has been endorsed at the number three position, with Daniel Hulme at the number four position.
