Leanne has worked hard all her life in private enterprise. As a business owner, she has experienced how difficult red tape can be. She believes Government needs to get the settings right so small business can flourish and create jobs, and Canberrans can all aspire to fulfil their ambitions. Leanne is standing up for people who work hard to get ahead. She understands a strong economy is the key to ensuring we have jobs for the future, enabling people to keep more of what they earn and ensuring the Government can guarantee the essential services Canberrans rely on.
