Senator Bob Brown Senator for Tasmania

Milne celebrated

26th Oct 2004

Greens Senator-elect Christine Milne is celebrating this afternoon following her clear victory over Family First’s Mrs Jacquie Petrusma in the final count.

“If ever a Tasmanian deserved electoral victory it is Christine Milne today,” Greens Senator Bob Brown said today.

“We’ll be upending a glass of Tasmanian champagne.

“Christine’s vote was six times that of Mrs Petrusma. Her personal vote was thousands bigger than either the Liberals’ Eric Abetz or Labor’s Kerry O’Brien, so this outcome is hugely deserved and will be

celebrated right around the island.

“I am totally delighted. It will be so good travelling to Canberra with Christine,” Senator Brown said.
