Deeply grateful for the enormous support right across the Northern Territory for Federal Labor with the re-election of Luke, Warren and I to Federal Parliament. It is indeed humbling to be re-elected as Senator for NT. I would like to take this opportunity to thank outgoing Labor leader Bill Shorten for his tireless campaign for the Territory in the many policies we took to the campaign, in particular abolishing CDP and to invest in remote housing in the regions and homelands and his total commitment to a First Nations Voice to Parliament. Federal Labor will shortly begin the process of electing a new Labor leader. Thankyou especially to the NT ALP Party and Members and our hard working Unions and all supporters across Central Australia, the Barkly, Arnhemland, VRD region, and the Top End for your enduring belief in a Fair Go for all Australians. Thankyou to our supporters on Christmas Island and the Cocos Keeling Islands for your trust in Warren and I, to serve you for the next 3 years again too. To my campaign team, Mandy Taylor in Central Australia and Charlie Powling in the Top End, you are awesome! Thankyou for a job well done along with our bush supporters for “Team Malarndirri” As ALP President Wayne Swan says, “There is no world in which Labor won’t stand for fair wages, a fair go, enhancing equality and tackling dangerous climate change.” To my families .. love you biggest mobs.. Thankyou for continuing to walk the journey with me. For now the Australian Labor Party nationally will rethink, reorganise and dust ourselves off to once again take up the fight on behalf of our supporters, for the disadvantaged and vulnerable and for future generations of Australians.
