Community Recognition Statement - Liz Tomlinson
Community Recognition Statement delivered in the Fifty-Seventh Parliament of New South Wales by the Member for Barwon Roy Butler on 25 February 2020.
I acknowledge the work of former Narrabri local Liz Tomlinson and her dedication to the Narrabri community.
Born into a farming family, she learned to notice the needs of others as a preschooler at her mother's side, delivering hot meals to the elderly.
She has actively demonstrated her belief in community involvement through numerous positions held while at high school, at university and as a parent.
As a rural financial counsellor based in Coonabarabran, she assisted clients beyond her job description while also caring for her seriously ill husband.
Liz is a passionate advocate for the farming community who puts her economic law, adult education and policy development skills to use every day in numerous community positions.
I thank Liz for her commitment and service to her community
