Vanessa Goodwin

Geoff Page, Tasmanian Liberal State President
The loss of Vanessa Goodwin has had a profound impact on the Tasmanian Liberal Party. Our members knew her as a person of integrity, intellect and compassion, whose commitment to the Party was unflinching. 
Vanessa represented her electorate of Pembroke with distinction, and as Attorney-General and Minister, she excelled. 
Vanessa will be sorely missed by all that knew her, and even those that did not.
I first had the pleasure of working with Vanessa as a fellow candidate when she put her hand up in 2006, Vanessa was ultimately successful in the 2009 campaign for the seat of Pembroke in the Legislative Council.
Vanessa championed a range of important issues during her successful parliamentary career. Nothing was beyond Vanessa, she fought for her constituents, she got results in her portfolios and she never backed down from her core, Liberal values.
We are intensely proud of her contribution to Tasmania and the Party.
