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.

Labor Will Put Mental Health Workers in Every Tasmanian Public School

Labor will recruit mental health workers to all Tasmanian public schools.

The statistics around mental health issues for Australian young people
are startling.

Half of all lifelong mental health problems begin before the age of 14.

One in seven young people aged 4 to 17 years experience a mental health condition in any given year.

One in ten young people aged 12-17 years old will self-harm, one in 13 will seriously consider a suicide attempt, and one in 40 will attempt suicide.

Suicide continues to be the biggest killer of young Australians.

We must do better.

Only Labor has a plan to put mental health workers in every Tasmanian public School. Find out more here.

Labor's Free TAFE Plan

Labor will make TAFE courses FREE in trades and industries that are crying out for skilled workers. These courses will help 5000 Tasmanians into work.

Building and construction, hospitality, aged care and disability services.

Because we know what a good, hands-on education means to people who just want a good, secure career. And because these qualifications are in our growing industries, you can be pretty sure you’ll have a job waiting for you when you complete it.
