Retirement of Serjeant-at-Arms

MR SPEAKER: Members, today marks the last sitting day that our Serjeant-at-Arms, Keith Johnson, will be on duty. Keith will be leaving the Assembly from the close of business tomorrow and that will end seven years of very capable and conscientious service to the Legislative Assembly. Keith has been Serjeant-at-Arms from the inception of the Legislative Assembly and, indeed, as certain members will recall, he was Serjeant-at-Arms for the ACT House of Assembly from 1980 to 1986.

Keith was born in Sydney and in January 1969 moved to the Australian Capital Territory, where he was employed by the Commonwealth Office of Education and Science. In 1970 he commenced duties with the Department of the Interior, where he remained until 1975, before undertaking duties for short periods with the Department of Health and the Attorney-General's Department. The year 1976 found him back with the Department of Territories in ACTION.
