Business owners Steve Threlfall and Robert Danieli will run for upper house parliamentary seats at November’s Victorian election.

They have been selected as the Northern Victoria candidates for the Australian Country Alliance party.

Mr Threlfall, who ran for the party in the 2010 state election, said he was hoping to address several issues if elected.

The owner of Trelly’s Hunting and Fishing World in Shepparton said he would be focusing on issues directly related to the hunting and fishing industries, including reinstating duck hunting at Winton Wetlands and cattle into Barmah Forest.

‘‘Also, a lot of people have come to me about paying for the use of public land, such as charges for parking, especially in coastal areas. I can see that filtering through to the Goulburn Valley as well,’’ Mr Threlfall said.

Mr Danieli said he was hoping to make local government more accountable.

‘‘We need to get the government to look after our best interests and not their own self-interests or their buddies’,’’ he said.

Mr Danieli said he was running on issues such as water, irrigation systems and efficiency, agricultural policy, local government reform and small business. He said it was also important to campaign for infrastructure services, including bridges at Echuca and Swan Hill and more train services, especially for Shepparton, Echuca and Swan Hill.

Mr Danieli is a former Campaspe Shire councillor and has worked for National Parks, Golden Poultry and the Australian Wheat Board before starting D&M Stockfeeds in 1995.

Mr Danieli is an active member of Lions, Kyabram Development Committee, Ratepayers’ Association, Campaspe Concerned Citizens and Chamber of Commerce.

Mr Threlfall has fourth-generation ties to northern Victoria. He has memberships with Goulburn Valley Motorcycle Club, Riverina Hunt Club, Field and Game Australia, Sporting Shooters Association of Australia, Goulburn Valley Sports Fishing Club, the Shepparton Gun Club and Australian Firearms Traders Association. He is also a member of Barmah Forest Preservation League.
