Nicolle Flint has been an invaluable member of the Liberal team and my government.
Nicolle has been a strong champion for Boothby and South Australia in the Liberal Party Room and the Federal Parliament.
I want to thank Nicolle for her service to the Federal Parliament, particularly in her role as a Deputy Whip and her committee work, and for her service to her community.
Nicolle has delivered not just on local projects like the Oaklands Crossing and the Flinders Link Rail, but also in her advocacy for people battling endometriosis and managing the loss felt from stillbirth.
The public attention from being a Parliamentarian does sometimes attract unacceptable behaviour, and I have admired Nicolle’s efforts to stand against the bullying and nastiness of particular groups and individuals.
Throughout those experiences however, Nicolle has kept a laser focus on her community and delivering for the people of Boothby and South Australia.
Nicolle is an impressive and passionate Parliamentarian who was the first woman elected to represent Boothby, and she has brought strong experience from her previous career to the role.
I look forward to continuing to work with Nicolle through the remainder of this term of Parliament, and to ensure we put forward a Liberal candidate who brings the same high-calibre qualities to the people of Boothby as she has.
I wish her all the best for what comes next.
