 Shane Broad elected to replace Bryan Green
 Braddon will have a strong Labor voice in the lower house
 Dr Broad will play a big role in the Labor team

Labor Leader Rebecca White has congratulated Labor’s Shane Broad on his victory in the Braddon recount.

“Shane Broad will be a terrific replacement for Bryan Green in Braddon,” Ms White said.

“It’s great that the people of Braddon will have a strong Labor voice representing them in the lower house.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming Shane into the Labor team and it’s a sitting week in Parliament so he’ll be straight into the action.

“Shane brings a wealth of skills to politics after a distinguished working life in agriculture.

“He’s an intelligent, hard working person who’ll have an important role to play as Labor prepares for the next election.

“I’d also like to pass on my best wishes to Brenton Best.

“Brenton was a Labor member of Parliament for 18 years and has always been passionate for the people of Braddon. I wish him all the best for the future.”

    Shane Broad tried to tell me when he was a PA to ‘silly sid’ that Tasmania was over run with foxes, he knew because he was an Agricultural scientist.
    I hope his observations and knowledge on other agricultural matters are more informed.

    “a distinguished working life in agriculture”
    What has he done that is “distinguished”?.

    Brenton Best was on the Committee to establish an ICAC.

    I addressed that Committee in camera and found him to be … a fool.

    Just the sort of pollie who should be kept out of Parliament.

    There are few competent pollies in the Tasmanian 25 person parliament so the dead wood make up the numbers.

    Will Labor vote to increase the parliament to 35 in the interest of good government?
