Member for Fairfax, Ted O’Brien open letter to residents of Fairfax
Thank you for entrusting me to continue to serve as your Federal Member.
While the government has changed, my resolute focus on representing you and delivering for our community remains unchanged.
I send a big heartfelt ‘thank you’ to hundreds of volunteers who generously helped on the campaign, often braving awful weather conditions.
I also pay tribute to the other nine candidates who contested the seat of Fairfax and their volunteers.
To them and their supporters, I thank you for your service and commit to do my best to also represent you in this next parliament.
My thoughts are with many of my own colleagues across the country who have lost their seats.
I congratulate Anthony Albanese and the Labor Party on being elected as the next government of Australia.
My hope is that we can work together to ensure that important local projects like bringing heavy rail to the Coast can still be delivered.
There’s a lot of work ahead and I’m ready to throw myself into it.
