BRENDAN SMYTH: CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR SERVICE TO CANBERRA AND THE ASSEMBLY

It is with warm congratulations that the Canberra Liberals team and I bid farewell to Brendan Smyth today. Over his past 18 years in the Assembly and as a member of the Canberra Liberals Party room, Brendan has been a loyal servant for the Canberra community, Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Hanson said today.

“First elected to the Federal House of Representatives in 1995 at a by-election,

Brendan served in the Federal Parliament before being elected to the ACT

Legislative Assembly in 1998. He’s since had a distinguished career in the

Assembly, including several years as Leader of the Canberra Liberals,” Mr Hanson said.

“Brendan has been a mentor for many Canberra Liberals MLAs over the years, including myself and his experience and expertise in policy and Assembly procedure has held the Canberra Liberals in good stead.

“I speak for the whole Canberra Liberals team in wishing Brendan Smyth all the best his future role as Commissioner for International Engagement. Brendan has a true passion for Canberra and his enthusiasm will be put to good use.

“Congratulations Brendan and thank you for your for you service to Canberra. We all look forward to it continuing for years to come,” Mr Hanson concluded.
