I’m Claire Chandler, passionate Tasmanian and proud representative for our great state in Canberra.
I’ve been blessed to live and work in beautiful Tasmania my entire life. I was raised in the Huon Valley and studied law at the University of Tasmania before working in risk advisory for Deloitte in Hobart.
In 2019, I was given the honour of being elected to the Australian Senate. In 2021 I was appointed as Chair of the Senate Finance & Public Administration Committee and as Deputy Government Whip.
Following the 2022 election, I was appointed as the Shadow Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs.
Because I know Tasmania, I know how important it is to fight for jobs and economic opportunity, support for local businesses and producers, and a common sense approach to governing and legislating.
I entered politics to help ensure that the next generation of Tasmanians will have the opportunity to live, work and raise a family in our beautiful state; to stand up for the crucial democratic values of freedom of speech and freedom of expression, and to show young Australians that you can make a difference and make your voice heard in Canberra.
