From Rebecca White:
I’m passionate about ensuring there is equality of opportunity for all Tasmanians regardless of where they live, their background or circumstances. I am passionate about ensuring regional communities are well represented and supported and I’m committed to growing Tasmania’s reputation as a great place to work, to visit and to live. My focus is on building stronger communities, promoting innovation in agriculture and harnessing the potential of the NBN technology.
Rebecca is practical, hard-working and passionate about Tasmania’s regional communities. She will ensure Lyons continues to share in the states growth and prosperity and that it realises its potential as the nation’s food bowl.
Rebecca grew up on her parents’ farm Redbanks in Nugent and attended Sorell School before graduation from UTas with a combined Commerce and Arts degree. She has built her own home in the electorate.
Rebecca was elected as the Tasmanian Labor Leader on the 17th March 2017.
Rebecca has energy, vigour and drive and her fresh approach will help ensure regional Tasmania’s strong future.
