Vale Tony Foster

Jeremy Rockliff, Premier

On behalf of the Tasmanian Government, I extend my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Tony Foster following his passing overnight.

A stalwart of his community, Mr Foster was Tasmania’s longest-serving mayor, dedicating 28 years to the role at Brighton Council.

Mr Foster was a tireless advocate for the Brighton community, serving on Council for 34 years.

It was an honour and privilege to work closely with Mr Foster throughout my time as Education Minister to establish the new Brighton High School, as well as deliver important upgrades to the Jordan River Learning Federation school.

Known for his integrity, good nature and vision, Mr Foster was a forward thinker who was driven by his passion for his local community and Tasmania.

I extend my sincere condolences to Mr Foster’s family, friends and the Brighton community.
