STATEMENT From Brendan Smyth MLA

After 21 years of public service and 18 years in the Legislative Assembly, I today announce my resignation as an MLA.

I wish to thank the people of Brindabella for their support over the years and the trust they’ve placed in me to represent them. Thank you for that honour.

I thank my colleagues; it has been an honour and a pleasure to be a member of the Liberal Party room over the past 18 years.

I have accepted a role as the new Commissioner for International Engagement for the ACT.

To my wife Robyn, daughters Amy and Lorena and son David I say thank you for everything you have done for me.
