Candidate for Bass - 4
I’m an anaesthetist and I’m standing for The Greens to try to help steer Tasmania onto the right track for the future.
Look at Tasmania. We have tremendous agricultural resources; we’ve got amazing forests that people come from across the world to see; we should have cheap, reliable, clean energy. We should be the richest state in Australia. But instead we’re logging our rainforests; we’re damaging our agriculture’s brand; we’ve mismanaged our energy resources; and the best businesses are scared to invest here because they know that an inferior but well connected business will win the favours. Hence we’re the poorest and sickest state in Australia.
