Lam­bie adds to Se­nate ticket

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

THE Jac­qui Lam­bie Net­work has an­nounced that Launce­s­ton tourism op­er­a­tor Chris Reynolds will join party leader Ms Lam­bie on her Tas­ma­nian Se­nate ticket in the 2019 fed­eral elec­tion.

Mr Reynolds pre­vi­ously won JLN pre­s­e­lec­tion for Lyons in the 2018 Tas­ma­nian state elec­tion.

He is the third mem­ber of the JLN Se­nate ticket, join­ing Ms Lam­bie and Ulver­stone lawyer and farmer Glynn Wil­liams.

Ms Lam­bie said Mr Reynolds was “ex­actly the sort of bloke that Can­berra needs”.

“He spent years at the coal­face work­ing for the least for­tu­nate Tas­ma­ni­ans, be­fore putting his life­time of lo­cal knowl­edge to use in his tourism busi­ness,” Ms Lam­bie said.

Sen­a­tor Lam­bie is seek­ing to re­gain her Se­nate seat af­ter re­sign­ing last year over dual cit­i­zen­ship.

Mr Reynolds said he was ex­cited to be run­ning for the JLN.

“I’m blessed to be able to spend my days show­ing vis­i­tors around this beau­ti­ful state of ours, and I know just how much Tas­ma­ni­ans are ca­pa­ble of ac­com­plish­ing,” he said.
