This is the resignation speech of Tasmanian State MP Peg Putt.
Putt, a longtime Greens activist, was elected to the Tasmanian House of Assembly in 1993, replacing Bob Brown in the electorate of Denison.
In 1998, Putt was the only Greens member to be elected to the House of Assembly, following its reduction from 35 to 25 members.
Joined by three other Greens following the 2002 election, Putt became leader of the party.
Following her retirement, she was succeeded as leader by Nick McKim.
