Hand up for seat
Tammy Atkins is standing as an independent candidate for the seat of Ovens Valley at next month’s Victorian election.
The seat is held by Nationals member and Cobram resident Tim McCurdy.
Ms Atkins said she was a qualified candidate with community support, who could deliver results for the region.
‘‘I have a strong record of delivering for our community, whether it is in education, as part of the local drug action team tackling ice and problematic drug use, or building our local manufacturing industry,’’ she said.
‘‘I am running as an independent for the seat of Ovens Valley because our region can do better.
‘‘We are facing some pretty big challenges and it’s clear we have missed out and we’ve watched on as Wodonga, Shepparton and other parts of Victoria, have won infrastructure and investment ahead of us.
‘‘My priority is creating new jobs across the region — from new jobs in manufacturing, to new jobs in renewable energy.’’ Ms Atkins’ core priorities are: ● supporting manufacturing and ensuring good local jobs into the future;
● education, so people can access the training they need for jobs in Ovens Valley;
● renewable energy which works for the region and ensuring we benefit with cheaper power and local jobs; and
● investment in tourism infrastructure to attract more visitors to the beautiful region.
