Senator David Bushby

Senator David Bushby has been a phenomenal advocate for Tasmania who can reflect positively on his 11 years in the Senate according to Tasmanian Liberal Senator Eric Abetz.

“Since entering the Parliament in 2007, David has not only been a strong and effective contributor to the Tasmanian Liberal Senate Team but has also been a champion of all things Tasmanian,” Senator Abetz said.

“In the Senate, he is renowned for his work in the Treasury and Finance portfolios where he has been a stand-out contributor towards economic policy over the last 11 years, including through his long service on the Senate Economics Committee.”

“His long service as the elected Senate Whip, and as the Chief Senate Whip since 2014,speaks volumes for the regard in which all of my Liberal and National Senate colleagues hold him.”

“David can reflect fondly on an incredible period of service to our nation and he will be sorely missed.”

“I wish David, his wife Sarah and his daughters all the very best,” Senator Abetz concluded.
