Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012-2013 Week 1 Hansard (6 November) . . Page.. 12..


those ideas during the negotiations had it not been for the hard work done over the last four years by that team. I approach the next four years here in the Assembly with a very strong bedrock of ideas and policies that have been put in place by my former colleagues, and that fills me with great confidence.

I am optimistic about the next four years. There are challenges that lie ahead for me, my staff and my party. But I am optimistic because in those challenges I will not be alone. I have the strong support of my party, which has a record number of members, and they are full of enthusiasm for the next four years. In those challenges I will be guided by the great ideas for Canberra that my party has prepared and 17 years of accumulated experience of working from the crossbench.

I look forward to working with all members of the Assembly over the next four years.
