2020 Valedictory Speech

In my final speech of the Ninth Assembly today, I thanked the residents of the Ginninderra Electorate for asking me to represent them. My gratitude for their trust has only grown over the past four years, and has guided every work I have spoken, every motion I have moved, every petition I have tabled, and every question I have asked. I likewise thanked my family and my staff for their support.

In addition, I thanked the government ministers who have responded to my representations on residents’ behalf with respect and genuine concern. Over the past few years, I have met with hundreds of Canberrans who were desperate for assistance, and I’m grateful that I’ve been able to help as many as I have.

Finally, I took the opportunity to farewell Vicki Dunne, an ardent advocate for the territory’s most vulnerable, a mentor, an example, and a dear friend.
