As members would no doubt be aware Candice Burch was elected following a count back of votes cast in the 2016 election to the vacancy in the Legislative Assembly. On behalf of the Division I would like to congratulate Candice on her election. Candice has been a dedicated, hard working and active member of the Canberra Liberals for many years and a former ACT Young Liberal President. Candice will no doubt be a great asset to our Assembly team.
2018 will be a busy year and the Division is determined to take the fight to Labor. To assist in this Management Committee has approved the creation of a Standing Campaign Committee to prepare for the next Federal and ACT elections. The Standing Campaign Committee will oversee the implementation of election review recommendations, undertake strategic planning for the elections, and assist in ongoing campaigning.
Finally I would like to welcome Sharon Haining, the Division’s new membership officer, who started work last week.
I would like to wish all members and their families a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
