Fionna Deppeler-Morton (ALP)
LIVING on a small farm in Broadford, my partner Drew and five children are proud to call the electorate of Euroa home.
I’ve worked in marketing, manufacturing, agriculture, community development, small business and the equine industry for more than two decades.
Labor has consistently championed community’s needs in jobs, health, education and community infrastructure, but there is plenty of work to do.
I’m proud of the work the Andrews Labor Government has done in the seat of Euroa, we have invested heavily in the things that matter.
We are transforming our kinders and schools in Kilmore, Broadford, Seymour, Euroa and Benalla.
We have rescued TAFE from the savage cuts by the previous government, and introduced free TAFE courses to help people get the training they need to get the jobs they want.
Under Labor, 54,000 jobs have been created in country Victoria — nearly three times more than what was created under the former National Party Liberal Government.
Only a Labor Govern- ment can continue to make the electorate of Euroa an even better place to live and work, and I know firsthand the challenges facing country kids, families, older Australians, people working in changing industries and our farmers.
I want to keep working to provide better childcare, schools for our kids, more jobs for our growing community, better education and training services to keep people in the workforce, and improved access to health services.
The Euroa electorate is growing and we need to cater for that growth in our towns, while at the same time helping and growing our world-class farming, tourism, and manufacturing sectors.
The National Party have taken the people of Euroa for granted for too long, as they see the seat as safe.
