Regional communities are the heart and soul of Tasmania.

Whether you live in Sheffield or Sorell, Bridgewater or Bicheno, the wide open spaces, safe streets and friendly neighbours you find in small towns and local communities make them great places to raise families.

I want regional communities to thrive. I have the energy and vigour to drive growth for regional Tasmania.

Now more than ever, people throughout Lyons need job security, better transport – more buses and better roads – and better access to services.

I want parents to raise their children secure in the knowledge there is a future for their community.

We must work harder to support our towns’ small businesses and our farmers who are the lifeblood of regional Tasmania.

It is important that Tasmania continues with improvements to water infrastructure with the aim of making Tasmania Australia’s food bowl.

This is a program I fully support. It offers great opportunity for communities throughout Lyons.

The rollout of the NBN will help connect us to the world and provide new ways for communities to engage with Government, private enterprise and each other.

As someone born in Lyons and raised on my parents’ farm ‘Redbanks’ in Nugent I know the issues that confront regional Tasmania.

I have built my own home in the electorate and have a personal stake in ensuring the concerns of country people are heard, listened to and acted upon down in Hobart.

The Hodgman Liberal government’s only budget priority is the next election. Unlike the Liberals, Labor is committed to delivering a vision for Tasmania that extends beyond the next election cycle.

A Labor government would take a leadership role in promoting preventive health policies, investing in early years education and supporting a smart future for Tasmania.

Read my budget reply speech here which outlines Labor’s compassionate vision for the future of Tasmania.

Labor is committed to preventative health

Labor strongly believes in grass roots preventative health programs that actively engage communities in their own health and wellbeing.  In keeping with this belief, Labor has announced two new preventative health policies focussing on providing healthy alternatives to sugary drinks and regulating electronic cigarettes.
