Liberal candidate Coats wants a strong economy and a strong future for Clark


The Tasmanian Liberals have announced that City of Hobart Councillor Will Coats has been endorsed as its candidate in the seat of Clark for the upcoming federal election.

Mr Coats said he was running because he wants a strong economy and a strong future for Clark.

“The Liberal Governments in Canberra and Hobart have done a fantastic job growing our economy and protecting the community, especially in the electorate of Clark,” Mr Coats said.

“But there is always more to do.I’m passionate about our community and I’m passionate about working to make sure Clark is the best place in the country to live, work and raise a family.

“Unlike any of the other candidates for Clark I am pro-business, pro-development and pro-jobs.I want to be Clark’s voice in a Liberal Government that will create the opportunities to ensure our best and brightest have a strong future in Tasmania.”

Mr Coats said Tasmania and Australia cannot afford the instability that a minority Green-Labor Government would bring.

“At the election, the people will have a choice: vote Liberal and get a strong government, vote green or independent and get chaos in Canberra that will hurt Tasmania.”
