Susie and I extend our congratulations to His Excellency General the Hon. David Hurley AC DSC (Ret’d) who was sworn-in yesterday as the 27th Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia.
To be chosen for the highest office in the country is a great compliment and a reflection of a lifetime of service to Australia.
We wish the Governor-General and Her Excellency Mrs Linda Hurley a fulfilling and successful term in the Office of Governor-General. We are confident their Excellencies will serve our nation with distinction.
Susie and I would also like to extend our sincere appreciation to General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Ret’d) and Lady Lynne Cosgrove for their invaluable contributions to the strength of our democracy during their five year term in the Office of Governor-General.
The Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia
