It is an honour to represent the people of Tasmania in Canberra and I consider myself extremely privileged to do so.
I believe it is important to never lose sight of the fundamental values that inspired me to accept the role of Senator. Values such as honesty, diversity, tolerance and a fair go for all Tasmanians make up the core of Labor Party policy and it is these values that I hold close to my heart.
Anyone who knows me would know that I am no stranger to hard work and that I will always do my best for the people I represent. I want to see this beautiful island state that we all call home prosper and grow. Not just for us, but for the future generations of Tasmanians as well.
