Statement in relation to Minister Meegan Fitzharris

Australian Greens

Today the ACT Greens acknowledge the work of Minister Meegan Fitzharris, who has today tendered her resignation from the Ministry and the ACT Assembly.

During her time in the Assembly, Minister Fitzharris has represented her community, both as Member for Molonglo and Yerrabi, with great commitment and dedication. She has also been a very passionate advocate for Gungahlin.

In each of her respective portfolios, Minister Fitzharris has made positive contributions to our progressive jurisdiction, and we particularly note her work overseeing the implementation of Canberra’s successful stage 1 light rail project.

In recent years, Minister Fitzharris has worked especially closely in the ‘umbrella’ Health portfolio with Greens Minister for Mental Health Shane Rattenbury at a time of significant transition for the health sector. Her leadership at this time has been invaluable in improving Canberra’s health system.

We have had a good working relationship with Minister Fitzharris and appreciate that she has been a hardworking, cooperative and positive member of the Assembly.

“The ACT Greens and their staff again thank Minister Fitzharris for her contributions and wish her the best of luck for her future endeavours,” Acting Greens leader Caroline Le Couteur said today.
