“As the fates would have it, [campaign group] North Sydney’s Independent reached out to me by the end of April [or] May of that year, so I just never had the time to do the activism that I wanted to do,” Tink said on Friday after updating her register of interests earlier in the week.
“Do I wish I had done something more? Yes I do, absolutely ... Now that I am the federal member the reality is I have an opportunity to exert that influence from inside the legislative system.”
Tink revealed on Friday the shareholding was small; she had purchased 1000 shares in Viva Energy and Beach Energy, and 100 in Transurban, with the entire shareholding costing less than $6000.
At the time her shareholdings were revealed, Tink said she was interested in Viva Energy as she was concerned it was not being pushed to produce the highest quality fuel, while she bought Beach Energy shares to gain insight into how they were proceeding with oil and gas exploration.
