Bur­ramine’s Ovens Val­ley can­di­date

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Born and raised in Bur­ramine, Kate Doyle is re­turn­ing home to con­test the up­com­ing Vic­to­rian State Elec­tion as La­bor’s can­di­date for Ovens Val­ley.

Ms Doyle was ed­u­cated at Bur­ramine South Pri­mary School, Yar­ra­wonga Sa­cred Heart Sec­ondary School and Galen Col­lege in Wan­garatta. The Doyle fam­ily is well known in the area, with the fifth gen­er­a­tion of Doyle’s now liv­ing in the orig­i­nal Bur­ramine farm house.

Ms Doyle has a back­ground in mar­ket­ing, ac­count­ing, ra­dio pro­duc­ing, dairy farm­ing, small busi­ness and has an ex­per­tise in pri­mary in­dus­try and agri-food mar­kets. She is cur­rently work­ing in the ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.

Now re­sid­ing in Melbourne with her hus­band Paul and two teenage daugh­ters, Ms Doyle is re­ally pleased with what the Vic­to­rian La­bor Govern­ment has de­liv­ered to the North East and be­lieves that through a La­bor lo­cal mem­ber the re­gion will go from strength to strength.

“The An­drews La­bor Govern­ment have in­vested in the things that mat­ter to the res­i­dents of Ovens Val­ley in­clud­ing, jobs, health, ed­u­ca­tion, the environment and are re­build­ing sport­ing and com­mu­nity fa­cil­i­ties – I want to build on that work and make the elec­torate a bet­ter place to live, work and raise a fam­ily.” Ms Doyle said

“I want a strong TAFE sys­tem that has qual­ity train­ing that leads to real lo­cal jobs, its vi­tal we have at­trac­tive em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for our young peo­ple. I had to move away from the area in pur­suit of a ca­reer and I don’t want other young peo­ple to feel that is their only op­tion.

“The coali­tion have taken the elec­torate of Ovens Val­ley for granted as it is a safe seat, I would like to see our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties send a mes­sage that they de­serve more and want more from their lo­cal mem­ber.

“I be­lieve we need a strong voice in par­lia­ment, some­one fo­cused on the is­sues that mat­ter most to coun­try peo­ple and I know I can be that per­son.

“I’m proud of La­bor’s in­vest­ment in North East Vic­to­ria, but there is plenty of work still to do – I want lo­cals to have the op­tion to vote for a com­mit­ted La­bor can­di­date.”

Ms Doyle said she will be work­ing closely with La­bor Up­per House Mem­ber for North­ern Vic­to­ria, Ja­clyn Symes to visit the many com­mu­ni­ties in the Ovens Val­ley elec­torate and en­gag­ing on the things that re­ally mat­ter to coun­try peo­ple.
