Delivering for Franklin
Since being elected in 2007 I have worked hard to create jobs and bring investment into Franklin. For a detailed breakdown of everything I’ve delivered for your local area, please see Delivered.
I’m proud to be part of a Labor Government which is delivering big reforms for Australia and big reforms for us locally in Tasmania. In Franklin we’ve seen:
- Jobs investment through the $100 million Tasmanian Jobs & Growth Plan
- Rollout of the National Broadband Network
- Launch of the National Disability Insurance Scheme DisabilityCare Australia
- $3.4 billion to Aged Care reforms
- Australia's first Universal Paid Parental Leave
- Historic increases to pensions of $207 a fortnight for singles, and $236 per fortnight for couples since the Labor party has been in Government
- An increase in the Child Care Rebate to 50% providing families with up to $7,500 per year per child
I have also worked hard to create jobs and bring investment to the electorate of Franklin, and I'm proud that this includes:
- 750 jobs at the Vodafone call centre in Kingston
- 300 construction jobs from the $15 million redevelopment of Blundstone Arena
- $8 million to grow Aquaculture employment in the Huon Valley
- $45 million of Federal investment for roads in Franklin
