Thank you, Mayo! I am so grateful and humbled to have won your support and be re-elected as the Member for Mayo.

Representing our community in the Federal Parliament is the greatest privilege and I cannot wait to hit the ground running again and continue speaking up for our region on the national stage.

Together, we have shown the Liberal Party that we will not be taken for granted and that people-power can still triumph over a huge election war chest.

I am so incredibly grateful to the hundreds of volunteers who worked tirelessly over months to make this extra-long campaign possible. Their dedication and passion was an endless source of encouragement to me.

Now, the work begins to make sure the Turnbull Government delivers on all the election promises made to our region and to raise our voice on the issues that matter to us all over again.

With your help, I will be leading community campaigns to improve local healthcare, address the cost of living, reinstate funding to the ABC and duplicate the Victor Harbor Road. And that’s just the start.

I look forward to listening to you, representing you and seeing you out-and-about in the community as the Member for Mayo once more.

Yours sincerely,

Rebekha Sharkie

Member-elect for Mayo
