Greg Barr and his son Max. Greg has been preselected by the Nationals to contest November's state election.
Political staffer and former detective Greg Barr has been preselected by The Nationals for the state seat of Shepparton.
Mr Barr was preselected at a meeting of party members on Saturday morning.
The father of two was one of three nominees to contest the preselection, along with Paralympian Michael Dobbie and farmer and commodities trader Marcus O’Dwyer.
He said he hoped to repay the party’s faith in him.
‘‘We’re eight months out from the state election and I’ve got to convince the whole electorate that I’m the person that’s capable of delivering for the seat of Shepparton,’’ Mr Barr said.
The vacancy was created after incumbent MP Jeanette Powell announced she would not recontest the seat.
