Michael Hodgman QC AM remembered Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Friday, 19 September 2014

Past Patron of ACM in Tasmania and Patron of the Australian National Flag Association (ANFA -TAS) Michael Hodgman, QC AM, and a warrior for both the Crown and the Flag,  was recognised recently at Parliament House, Hobart. 

 Members of both organisations were able to present to the Premier of Tasmania, Will Hodgman (son of Michael) with a framed portrait of his father, which the Premier gratefully received.  The event was sponsored by the Hon Elise Archer MHA. Who has accepted to be Patron of ANFA (Tas).  It was organised by the Sectary of the ANFA (Tas) Mr John Salmon. President of ANFA (Tas) and State Convenor of ACM in Tasmania, Mr Reg Watson passed the framed portrait on to the Premier.

Mr Watson said in his brief and casual address that the Premier's Father "will long be remembered by all. Mr Salmon and I knew Michael for more than thirty years.  He was colourful and flamboyant.  His love for his flag, our system of government and heritage knew no bounds," said Mr Watson.

 "Having this portrait of our supporter and patron was very well, but we considered it would be worthy to present it to his son, now Premier of Tasmania. I can recall when I interviewed Michael Hodgman which was aired on my radio spot that he boasted, 'Will be the greatest Premier ever',"

The  Premier amusingly responded by saying, "I think he told everyone the same thing." Mr Salmon said it was a shame Will's father never lived to see his son fulfil become Premier. 

A light lunch followed.
