Archbishop Faulkner welcomes new state governor
Adelaide's Catholic Archbishop Leonard Faulkner has welcomed the news that Marjorie Jackson-Nelson, AO, MBE, will be South Australia's next Governor.
"She is a great Australian, not only because of her achievements on the athletics track but also in public life," Archbishop Faulkner said.
"She already has a strong record of service to the community, especially her work in raising funds to fight leukaemia and her support for those with leukaemia.
"She will I know bring that public spirit to her post as Governor."
Archbishop Faulkner said he believed it was appropriate for a woman to be appointed Governor.
