One of us
Leanne Atkinson is a local businesswoman and mother of five. She is a former Board member of Regional Development Australia and former Shire Councillor. Leanne knows what it takes to make Bega and the Far South Coast an even better place to live, work and raise a family.
Working hard for our community
In her 25 years of working in tourism and regional development, Leanne has brought people together in the community. She has worked with local businesses, community organisations and government on a range of projects and created pathways for young people into work and further study. We can count on Leanne to deliver for our community.
Fighting for local jobs and services
The Liberal Government has taken our area for granted. Leanne Atkinson will fight to:
- Restore and improve vital local health services cut by the Liberal Government;
- Boost funding for TAFE and local schools to make sure our kids gain the skills they need for full-time employment; and,
- Ease the cost of living by putting downward pressure on electricity and housing prices.
