Paul O’Halloran was elected to the Tasmanian House of Assembly in 2010, representing the division of Braddon.

He grew up on a dairy farm on the north west coast of Tasmania. He started out as a Labor supporter, but his activism in the Franklin Dam dispute led him to join the Greens.

He was not re-elected at the 2014 House of Assembly elections.
