Senator Claire Chandler
As a passionate Tasmanian who has lived and worked in our state all my life, I am proud to be representing Tasmania in the Senate as part of the Morrison Coalition Government.
Raised in the Huon Valley, I now live in Blackmans Bay with my husband. I completed my Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws degree at the University of Tasmania before starting my career at Deloitte, where I worked in the Hobart risk advisory practice up until being elected to the Senate.
As a proud Tasmanian, I want our state to continue to grow economically so that our community can reap the benefits – be that through higher employment, lower cost of living, or more opportunities for young people to remain in our state rather than move to the mainland. I believe the key drivers to achieve this are ensuring Tasmanians have the best possible access to education and training, maintaining infrastructure investment so our regional areas are not left behind, and looking for ways to make it easier for local businesses to get ahead.
