First Labor candidate for federal election

LABOR has endorsed its first candidate for the next federal election, small business owner Brian Mitchell for the seat of Lyons.

MEDIA CONSULTANT: Brian Mitchell, who owns a media consultancy company near Sorell. He is a Labor candidate for Lyons.

Mr Mitchell owns a media consultancy company in Penna, two kilometres north of Sorell.

He said he had always had an interest in politics, and had a sense that he should make a contribution to the public.

“I’m passionate about the whole electorate. What Lyons needs is someone who realises that it’s not just a southern seat or a northern seat and not just an East Coast seat, but must be committed to all of it,” he said.

Mr Mitchell said his primary campaign focus would be on job creation.

“It all starts with jobs that support families and build communities,” Mr Mitchell said.

“I am aggressively pro- jobs in industry, farming, forestry, tourism, retail and services.”

Mr Mitchell also believes Tasmania should grasp new opportunities and, as such, he is in full support of medicinal cannabis trials.

“We cannot afford to turn our backs on innovation that has the potential to add millions of dollars to regional communities,” Mr Mitchell said.

“A medicinal cannabis trial ticks all the boxes – it ticks the medicinal box, it ticks the humanitarian box … and it ticks the economic box.”

He also hopes to focus on supporting low-income families in the region.

“There are a number of low income or sole parent families in Lyons that are being badly hurt by the Liberal cuts to all sorts of payments, like superannuation contributions to things like the GP fee,” Mr Mitchell said.

“The Liberals have axed more than $16 million in regional infrastructure investment from Lyons and, nearly a year into government, tens of millions of dollars earmarked for Lyons in the Tasmanian Jobs and Growth plan is nowhere to be seen.”
