Comment in response to questions about Indi candidature
“It has been my practice, in both 2013 and 2016, not to comment about standing as a candidate for Indi until a Federal election is announced. That will also be the case ahead of the next election which may not occur until early 2019.
“I will continue to focus all my energy on working as hard as I can to best represent the people of Indi in the Federal Parliament.
“There is plenty of work to be done. Priorities for 2018 include the North East rail line, community energy, regional telecommunications, higher education, aged care, health and regional development.”
