Tim Hammond resigns from Federal Politics
Member for Perth, Tim Hammond joined Gareth to announce his resignation from Federal Politics due to family reasons.
“As incredibly difficult as it is, I’ve made a very personal decision and that is most regrettably I have to resign from that role. Purely for the purposes that for the last 18 months, as much as I have desperately tried to wrestle this to the ground, I just can not find myself reconciling the role of a Federal Parliamentarian from here in Perth, with being the Dad I fundamentally need to be, to 3 very little children.”
“The people of Perth also require and quite frankly deserve a representative who is doing a 110% to make sure that Perth is being put first, I just don’t think I could look them in the eye and say that I’m doing that job if I’m kinda doing it on half speed.”
