Tasmanian Labor Campaign Launch

Labor launched its Tasmanian campaign today with Anthony Albanese giving an inspiring speech.

Some great announcements for Tasmania delivering jobs in manufacturing and renewable energy.

Albo also outlined how a Labor government will strengthen Medicare, make it easier to own a home, put the care back in aged care and tackle the cost of living.

Scott Morrison keeps saying it’s not his job, not his responsibility – so why does he want the job? It’s time to elect a government led by a Prime

Minister who wants the job and does the job – and that’s Albo.

Thank You Tasmanian Fire Service

Thankyou to all Tasmania Fire Service volunteer firefighters for their time, dedication and service in keeping, not only their own communities, but us all safe.

Earlier today I joined Toby Thorpe – Labor Candidate for Huon, Kate Rainbird – Tas Labor Senate Candidate and Senator Carol Brown for the announcement by Julie Collins MP that if elected Labor will commit $500,000 for a pilot program to deliver better training and improve preparedness of volunteer firefighters

In the community at Eastlands

Busy morning at Easlands with Julie Collins MP, Daniel Hulme, Labor candidate for the Senate and Sarah Lovell MLC .

Plenty of conversations regarding concerns with cost of living increases.

After a decade of Liberal Government the only plan they have is to reintroduce extreme workplace laws.

With everything going up, except your pay, Anthony Albanese and Labor have a plan for cheaper childcare, cheaper power bills and more secure well paid jobs.

Today I joined members of the Ukrainian community – including husband Robert Bilyk – and their Tasmanian friends at a rally in Hobart calling for peace in Ukraine.

The Labor Opposition stands shoulder to shoulder with the Australian Government, the Australian community and Australia’s allies across the world in supporting Ukraine and opposing this unprovoked aggression.

Thank you to the Association of Ukrainians in Tasmania for organising this rally and for supporting their community.

Слава Україні 🇺🇦

Words below from my husband – who is of Ukrainian descent – and has family living in Ukraine 🇺🇦

Tears flowed at this morning’s rally of solidarity with the Ukrainian people held at Parliament House gardens in Hobart.

A number of people spoke of their shock and disbelief at Putin’s unprovoked and unjustified attack on the peaceful and peace loving people of Ukraine.
