About Jo

Jo Palmer lives with her husband and four children in West Launceston, having grown up in Trevallyn since the age of six.

I am passionate about increasing community pride, local jobs and small business growth, and has great belief in the power of education.

I have supported our community in Ambassador roles for sick or traumatised children, people with disabilities and medical research. She is a Tasmanian of the Year recipient for her charity work.

I believe a hand-up offers far greater long-term benefits than a hand-out and is committed to the importance of individual responsibility.

I have served Tasmania for 20 years as a trusted journalist and news reader. Now she will be your trusted voice for Rosevears in Parliament and within the State Government.
