Since being elected in 2008, I've been a passionate voice for people with disabilities, refugees, children and marginalised Tasmanians.
To become the Tasmania we are capable of being, we must look after our most vulnerable citizens with far more heart – the young Tasmanians who sleep on the streets at night; the elderly, alone in their homes; ageing carers; old and new Tasmanians, exposed to racism as a result of their perceived difference; and Tasmanians living with mental illness, with physical, or intellectual impairment.
Together we can create a resilient, low-carbon economy that cares for people and protects our unique cultural and environmental heritage.
