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.

Violence in America holds up a mirror to racism in Australia

Tasmanian Labor Leader Rebecca White’s Talking Point on COVID-19.

If you, like me, are watching what is occurring in America and feeling anxiety build in the pit of your stomach as the growing tension over race spills into the streets, then maybe you’re ready to help shine a spotlight on inequality and racism here at home before more time is lost.

It may be a coincidence that the events in America are occurring during Reconciliation Week here in Australia, but it’s a jarring reminder that we have similar problems with inequality, racism and discrimination that must be addressed.

The stories of racism and prejudice in Australia may not make the mainstream media as frequently as they do in America, but the stories exist. And they are equally as shocking.

Where to now?

Tasmanian Labor Leader Rebecca White’s Talking Point on COVID-19.

COVID-19 has had a profound impact on all our lives.

It has caused economic and social upheaval. It has turned life as we knew it on its head.

On behalf of the Labor party I would like to convey our sympathy to those families who have lost loved ones to this insidious virus.

I cannot begin to imagine how awful it must be to be robbed of the opportunity to say goodbye or hold the hand of the person you love as they slip away. This virus is not only taking the lives of people we love but it is taking away our ability to be together as we suffer these heartbreaking moments.

I would also like to recognise and thank all the workers who have continued to support our community throughout this pandemic.
