CPSU saddened by Michael Hodgman’s passing
The CPSU was saddened to hear the news that former state and federal politician Michael Hodgman had passed away this morning.
Tasmanians will remember Mr. Hodgman as a politician who stood up for the things he believed in and worked tirelessly for his electorate, as a lawyer who ceaselessly pursued justice and as a genuine and likeable man. Through his work he improved the lives of thousands of Tasmanians. He was a larrikin in the great Australian tradition and stories about his feats will be shared in workplaces, homes and wherever Tasmanians gather to remember him over the next few weeks.
The true measure of Mr Hodgman is that he was liked and admired by both the people who agreed with his politics and those who didn’t and will be missed by all. The CPSU would like to extend condolences to the whole Hodgman clan at this time of great loss.
