I offer my warm congratulations to Meegan Fitzharris on her election to the ACT Legislative Assembly, following the resignation of former Chief Minister Katy Gallagher.
I mentored Meegan throughout her election campaign in 2012, and I am delighted she will now be representing the people of Molonglo.
Meegan is a great asset to Canberra and the Labor assembly team. She is bright, hardworking and has a broad depth of experience across both the public and private sectors.
She is a strong and successful advocate for her community, and I offer her my full support as she steps into her new role.
