Statement from Simon Behrakis


It’s an honour to be elected as the new member for Clark in today’s recount.

I love this State, and it is humbling to be given the responsibility to represent the people of Clark in our State’s parliament.

I am excited to hit the ground running to deliver what matters for the people of Clark, particularly on the issues which I have already been advocating for during my time as an Alderman for the City of Hobart.

This includes building our state’s infrastructure to increase housing supply and reducing traffic congestion so that all Tasmanians, even our most vulnerable, can live, work and get around our State.

I’m looking forward to working with the Tasmanian Liberal Team to continue to deliver on the Rockliff Liberal Government’s proven, long-term plan to grow our economy and ensure Tasmania continues to be the best place to live and raise a family in the world.
