Kevin Morgan to lead United Australia Party Senate team in Tasmania

Federal Leader of the United Australia Party, Clive Palmer, today announced experienced government advisor and business advocate Kevin Morgan as the lead candidate for the party’s Senate team in Tasmania.

“Kevin is the ideal candidate to lead our Tasmanian Senate team that promises to put Tasmania back on the map,’’ Mr Palmer said.

“Tasmania has reached the stage where there is a chance for real change which Kevin Morgan can deliver.”

Born and bred in Tasmania, Mr Morgan learned the importance of dedication, team work and leadership as a player, coach and administrator in multiple sports.

He studied electrical engineering and began work with the Hydro Electric Commission in 1977.

Mr Morgan started and operated his own electronic monetary processing system from 1993 to 2009 before working as Adviser with the Department of Premier and Cabinet supporting Business and the McCain’s Community Taskforce from 2010 to 2013.

He has since worked as a marketing specialist for small business and has extensive campaign experience with the former Palmer United Party where he was state leader in Federal and State elections and the party’s Tasmanian co-ordinator.

“I pride myself on being an action person and fixing Tasmania’s problems with a vision and a plan and then delivering on it,’’ Mr Morgan said.

“No other party has delivered a sustainable vision and plan for Australia’s future.

“I am standing for the Senate because I am sick and tired of politicians putting Tasmania last,’’ he said.

“It is a sad situation that many Tasmanians cannot find work, resulting in declining respect for ourselves, each other and the community.

“We need investment and jobs in order to develop our towns and communities which only the United Australia Party can deliver,’’ he said.
