Duane Pitt, born in Hobart, started work as a fifteen-year-old within the building industry, went on to start up a small business, employing fifteen Tasmanians.
During his journey he has been employed as a project manager, general manager, security, facility manager as well as twenty plus years as a tradesman.
Watching continual degradation of the political landscape within state and Federal government has prompted him to stand for the seat of Franklin, with an idea of steering focus back to fundamental Australian values. Small government and rights of the individual would be at the fore when looking at legislation.
Given the relationships and broad base interaction with Tasmanians in both a work and sporting environment he understands the frustration within the community.
With a willingness to listen and learn he aims to help improve policies and better outcomes for all Tasmanians.
