His contribution over the past 15 years to both the community and Parliament has been highly regarded.
My experience with Dr Washer has been one of admiration.
On election day, Dr Washer came to each voting booth in support of what became my successful campaign and at each was greeted in the most congratulatory and encouraging manner by the people in the Joondalup.
In one instance, one woman shared how Dr Washer had not only helped by being a strong voice for the electorate but also had delivered her baby, showing the personal impact he has had in many lives.
I honour his contribution and wish him all the best as he finishes what will be his final term as the Federal Member for Moore.
