LAUNCE­S­TON small busi­ness owner Jess Greene has been un­veiled as La­bor’s can­di­date for Ro­se­vears in the May Leg­isla­tive Coun­cil elec­tion.

The an­nounce­ment of her can­di­dacy comes af­ter MLC Kerry Finch said last week he would not re­con­test the seat.

Ms Greene vowed that if elected, she would be a strong ad­vo­cate for the peo­ple of Ro­se­vears and hold the Gov­ern­ment to ac­count: “As a small busi­ness owner and a union rep­re­sen­ta­tive, I know the im­por­tance of a job to some­one’s life, and I un­der­stand the pres­sures on op­er­a­tors within a small com­mu­nity to re­main prof­itable and ef­fi­cient within a com­pet­i­tive busi­ness en­vi­ron­ment.’’
