Mem­ber for Al­bury, Greg Aplin an­nounced on Tues­day that Lib­eral Party mem­bers have cho­sen Bowna Vet Justin Clancy as the Al­bury Lib­eral Can­di­date for the March 2019 elec­tion.

“Three very strong can­di­dates put them­selves for­ward with Justin gain­ing strong ap­proval based on his vi­sion for our com­mu­nity,” Mr Aplin said.

“Justin Clancy is a hard work­ing lo­cal busi­ness owner with strong con­nec­tions in our com­mu­ni­ties across the elec­torate.

“I look for­ward to men­tor­ing Justin and do­ing ev­ery­thing I can to sup­port his cam­paign.”

Born in Al­bury, and raised on a farm at Bowna near Ta­ble Top, Justin con­tin­ues to live in Bowna with his wife Tabitha and three chil­dren Xavier (8), Sea­mus (6) and Na­talie (2).

He has been ac­tive par­tic­i­pant in nu­mer­ous com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, con­tribut­ing to the im­por­tant work of the Mercy Health Al­bury Com­mu­nity Ad­vi­sory Group, Al­bury Com­pan­ion An­i­mal Ad­vi­sory Panel and Sports Al­bury Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee, as well as serv­ing on the boards of the Ro­tary Club of Al­buryHume, Al­bury-Wodonga RUFC and Sa­cred Heart North Al­bury Parish Coun­cil.

Hav­ing run his fam­ily vet cen­tre clin­ics in Al­bury and Wodonga, Justin in­nately un­der­stands the needs and con­cerns of lo­cal small busi­nesses. His busi­ness was a 2018 Al­buryWodonga Busi­ness Awards win­ner.

“I am hum­bled and hon­oured to be se­lected as the Lib­eral can­di­date for the Al­bury elec­torate. I thank the lo­cal Party Mem­bers for the op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue build­ing our com­mu­nity,” Mr Clancy said.

“I would also like to pay trib­ute to my friend and men­tor, Greg Aplin for his ded­i­ca­tion and ser­vice to our com­mu­nity and I look for­ward to work­ing with him closely over the com­ing months.

“I have been com­mit­ted to this re­gion through my busi­ness, and par­tic­i­pa­tion in a va­ri­ety of com­mu­nity groups, sport and fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties, and would be hon­oured to rep­re­sent this com­mu­nity in the NSW Par­lia­ment should the peo­ple of this great elec­torate sup­port me at the state elec­tion on March 23.

“By elect­ing the Lib­eral can­di­date, our com­mu­nity will sup­port the Bere­jik­lian Gov­ern­ment’s con­tin­ued de­liv­ery of in­fra­struc­ture and ser­vices that will make Al­bury an even bet­ter place to live,” Mr Clancy said.
