Janie Finlay

Bass Members of Parliament

I’ve always fought hard for our region. I’ve got a heart for community. I love it and that’s why I’ve always been so committed as a councillor and a leader of community and sports organisations.

As your Labor member for Bass I promise tenacity, courage and empathy to fight for what’s right for Northern Tasmania.

NZ prime minister Jacinta Ardern said: “It takes courage and strength to be empathetic and I’m very proudly an empathetic and compassionate leader.”

This is an approach I identify with.

We have to combine courage with understanding around what our community needs when we consider housing, secure jobs and proper health care. We also need to deeply understand the needs of businesses.

I will work with everyone in our community, I will listen, I will learn and together we can boldly drive our region forward.
