Ms Osborne said the biggest drawcard of the

Fitzharris not after minister role
Meegan Fitzharris was officially announced as
the newest member of the ACT Legislative
Assembly by ACT Electoral Commissioner
Phillip Green on Friday.
The Labor MLA for Molonglo replaces
former Chief Minister Katy Gallagher who
resigned in December from her role to contest
an ACT Senate seat.
Ms Fitzharris has ruled herself out of a
ministry position when caucus meets to elect a
new minister next week ahead of a cabinet
Certainly I do have future ambition to be a
minister one day but that s in the hands of
caucus and the chief minister, but in the
meantime I ve got plenty to do, she said.
Ms Fitzharris is a former Attorney-General s
Department public servant, a mother-of-three
and a Gungahlin resident.
The suburb has a fast growing population of
more than 50,000 and Ms Fitzharris is the only
MLA from Canberra s northern-most district.
At the 2012 ACT election she won 2626
primary votes on the Labor ticket, out-polling
Attorney-General Simon Corbell by about 700
Ms Fitzharris is considered a strong
campaigner and effective manager of staff,
having worked as a chief-of-staff for Andrew
Barr since the 2012 election.
Ms Fitzharris voiced strong support for the
Capital Metro light rail and said it would bring
greater public transport options for those along
the Civic to Gungahlin route.
I m looking forward to learning and talking
to people in the community, both local residents
and also local business owners, particularly in
the town centre, about their view on it, she
Mr Barr said Ms Fitzharris new role was a
chance for Gungahlin to have its voice heard in
debates about the city s future.
