Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan has acknowledged the contribution of the Member for Farrer in her role as Minister for Health.
“I’m sad and disappointed for Ms Ley,” Ms McGowan said.
“This must have been a very difficult time for her and her family.
“Ms Ley has been a good political neighbour. We have worked together effectively on a number of different issues including health, mental health including Headspace, infrastructure and cross border issues, and with the Murray Darling Basin Authority over water management.
“I acknowledge and appreciate Ms Ley’s leadership and public service. I look forward to continuing to work with her as the Member for Farrer and as a strong voice for rural and regional Australia.”
