On behalf of the Canberra Liberals I pay tribute to Sue Salthouse. I am deeply saddened at Sue’s passing. I had the privilege of working with Sue for many years in the disability sector. Her sense of humour and willingness to support and mentor others will not be forgotten.
Sue was a powerful and determined advocate for people with a disability and for women. More recently Sue’s tireless advocacy was recognised with being awarded ACT Senior Australian of the Year. She has played an important part in more advisory committees and panels than I can name. Her numerous awards and recognition are just a small testament to her enormous contribution in a range of areas and she will be sorely missed.
I wish to express our deepest condolences to her family and friends as they come to terms with her death in difficult circumstances.
