LABOR’S Jo Siejka MLC has been re-elected as the Member for Pembroke in Tasmania’s Legislative Council, with a final margin of 58.5 per cent over the Liberals’ Kristy Johnson (41.5 per cent), after preferences.
Ms Siejka said she was humbled by the result and looked forward to serving the people of Pembroke, which took in areas from Lindisfarne through to Tranmere, for the next six years.
“I have been overwhelmed and humbled by the support from the community,” she said.
Ms Siejka thanked Pembroke electors for re-electing her as their representative.
“Their encouragement has motivated me to work even harder,” she said.
“As with any campaign, there are many people to thank.
“While the candidate is the person you see out the front, election campaigns are very much a team effort.
“Also, a big thanks to all my supporters – without your help this wouldn’t have been possible.
“I’m honoured by the result and am looking forward to the next six years.”
Ms Siejka campaigned hard on finding solutions to the health crisis, and fixing local infrastructure challenges such as the Mornington roundabout.
“It’s now back to work making sure the people of Pembroke are represented in Tasmania’s Parliament,” Ms Siejka said.
