•      Labor preparing to take government
•      Leader invites Tasmanians to put their hands up
•      Liberals out of ideas and falling apart just three years in
Labor Leader Rebecca White has called on everyday Tasmanians to consider putting their hands up as Labor candidates for the next state election as the party moves forward in its determined bid to win majority government.
Joining Labor’s Upper House candidate for Rumney Sarah Lovell on the hustings in Sorell today, Ms White said a future government needed Tasmanians from all walks of life to honestly represent the community’s views in State Parliament.
“Labor has a great candidate in Sarah Lovell who has strong values of social justice, is smart, articulate and already working hard for the electorate,” Ms White said.
“I want people like Sarah to step forward for the Labor party.
“Labor will win seats at the next election and we want good people to join our team.
“The Liberals on the other hand will only lose seats and there will be a nasty fight between sitting MPs as they try to cling to power.
“Over the past three years Tasmanians feel as if they have been ignored or, worse, disregarded by the Hodgman Government which quickly lost the focus of what government should be doing – listening to everyone, including everyone and governing in the best interest of all Tasmanians.
“I want to hear from all Tasmanians and I will be listening to all Tasmanians.”
Pre-selection to stand as a Labor party candidate opens in early May.
