A mes­sage from Steph . . .

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

I am in­cred­i­bly hum­bled to be re­turned to the seat of Euroa with an in­creased ma­jor­ity against a statewide swing.

I feel so priv­i­leged to rep­re­sent our re­gion and the fierce and pas­sion­ate peo­ple who call it home.

The re­sult is bit­ter sweet. While The Na­tion­als per­formed strongly across the state, the swing against the Lib­er­als means La­bor has re­tained gov­ern­ment.

La­bor’s re-elec­tion means the $2 bil­lion the Lib­er­als and Na­tion­als com­mit­ted to the Euroa elec­torate to im­prove our train ser­vice and build much needed in­fra­struc­ture in­clud­ing the Kil­more by­pass to re­vi­talise the town, Be­nalla po­lice sta­tion and Euroa sa­le­yards will be much harder to achieve.

I will be seek­ing to run strong com­mu­nity cam­paigns on these is­sues to keep them on the radar of city politi­cians and to make sure we get a bet­ter deal on pub­lic trans­port, roads, health and ed­u­ca­tion.

I con­grat­u­late all of the can­di­dates who put them­selves for­ward for the seat of Euroa. It’s not easy to put your­self for­ward but it is im­por­tant for our elec­torate to have a choice.

I also want to thank the many vol­un­teers who sup­ported not only my can­di­dacy, but also those who put in their time and ef­fort to sup­port other can­di­dates.

Most im­por­tantly, I am grate­ful for the unswerv­ing love and sup­port of my fam­ily and friends. — Steph Ryan, Mem­ber for Euroa
