Liberal Party booth captains at the Farrer school polling booth for quite a number of elections. They have been letterboxing and handing out how-to-vote cards at Farrer and elsewhere ever since. Mr and Mrs Campbell have also been active in our southern electorate branch and the central electorate branch and now attend the Woden-Weston Creek interest branch.
We are a party that honours our past. That past is built upon the dedicated service of people such as Valerie and Russ Campbell. Their selfless effort and tireless support have kept steadfast, and for Valerie that has been the case through six decades of commitment. She was there for the Menzies years; she was there for the dismissal and the Fraser government; she was there when John Howard started his administration; she was there through his government and she is there now in opposition; she was there through political crisis and political calm; and she was there for her party and for her beliefs.
On the 60th anniversary of party membership of Mrs Valerie Campbell, I would like to formally recognise her extraordinary commitment. I would also like to personally express my thanks and gratitude for a genuine believer in Liberal ideals, a loyal supporter of the party and a true Liberal stalwart. Mrs Campbell, on your 60th anniversary as a party member, for your dedication, loyalty and continued support, the Liberal Party in the ACT recognises you, thanks you and congratulates you.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
