As I travel around the beautiful electorate of Lyons, I see the results that a strong, stable, majority Hodgman Liberal Government has delivered for Tasmania.
Our economy is strong and growing again, we have created more than 10,000 new jobs, our budget is back in balance and we are improving our health and education services. Tourism is booming and activity is up in our resource-based industries, including agriculture, aquaculture, forestry and mining.
Tasmania is a very different place to what it was in 2014 under a Labor-Greens minority government that steered our economy into recession, lost 10,000 jobs, hiked our unemployment rate up to 8.6% and burdened us with cumulative deficits of $1.1 billion.
Between now and the election due in March, I will continue to make my way around the electorate of Lyons to hear more of your thoughts and explain the Hodgman Government's positive plan to build Tasmania's future. You can download a copy of our Plan to Build Your Future here.
All the best and I look forward to seeing you at one of my community sausage sizzles or out and about in the electorate.
