Senate tickets: Support those who already champion our State

06 September 2018

The State's peak farming organisation has backed calls for the Liberal and Labor parties to support sitting members on Senate tickets due to be announced this weekend.

 Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TFGA) President Wayne Johnston said that senators Richard Colbeck and Lisa Singh were both staunch advocates for Tasmania.

"The community, farmers and businesses in Tasmania expect that their respective parties will ensure that they are placed appropriately on party Senate tickets, in a position that reflects their significant contribution," Mr Johnston said.
