The contest for the newly-created seat of Euroa is heating up with Clare Malcolm announced as the Australian Labor Party-endorsed candidate.
Ms Malcolm said she was excited and humbled to be endorsed and that winning the seat of Euroa would not be an easy task.
‘‘I know from the conversations that I have had with local residents over the past couple of months, that they want two things: they want to be heard, and they want better times ahead,’’ Ms Malcolm said.
‘‘If successful in November I give my commitment that I will be Euroa’s representative in Spring St, rather than Spring St’s representative in Euroa.’’
Ms Malcolm said employment, education and training, health and transport services were among the key issues that deserved focus in the Euroa electorate.
‘‘This region is undergoing change and job security for local workers is important, we also need to make sure that with job progression, we ensure that training opportunities are available,’’ she said.
‘‘I will fight for improved education services for our children and our young adults, and to give our teachers the support they need.
‘‘We need better health services for our local communities and our regional centres. The recent closure of the birthing unit at Seymour is a big loss for young couples and families in the area.
‘‘The surge in need for mental health services, particularly among our young people cannot be ignored any longer.’’
Ms Malcolm lives in neighbouring Wallan, with her husband Paul and two of her three daughters.
‘‘This part of the world is tremendously important to me and over the next eight months and beyond, I will fight hard for it,’’ she said.
‘‘I’ve seen how it all works up in the big smoke, and I now want to be able to give the people of Euroa what they deserve: strong, committed and vocal representation.’’
