Where is Liberal candidate for Pembroke?

Tasmanian Labor

The Liberal
Party seems to have no idea who its candidate will be in the Pembroke
by-election.

After
brashly declaring they would definitely be running a candidate, and despite
advertising for a couple of weeks, it looks like the Liberals are struggling to
find anyone who wants to join their dysfunctional and rapidly disintegrating
Government.

People on
the Eastern Shore are facing massive increases to their costs of living while
their wages don’t keep pace – it’s no wonder no one wants to stand alongside
weak Jeremy Rockliff and his detested Deputy Michael Ferguson.

The Liberals
were embarrassed in the Huon by-election earlier this year – coming a humiliating
fourth behind the Greens – and a third of their MPs have thrown in the towel
since last year’s election.

With less
than five weeks until the election, people are rightly asking why the Liberals
are either keeping their candidate in hiding, or whether they just can’t find
anyone who wants to wear their worn-out pale blue polo-shirts on the campaign
trail.

Labor is already out and about, backing our candidate, Alderman Luke Edmunds. Luke’s a fantastic local candidate, dedicated to stopping massive cost of living increases and making the eastern shore an even better place to live.
