Southern Mallee Matters Makes their Mark

The final results of the Victorian State election have now been confirmed by the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC), over two weeks after the official vote took place.

With a huge statewide swing towards Labor, many seats were on a knife edge until the VEC was able to finalise results, such as the regional seat of Ripon where Liberal Louise Staley was returned to the electorate by just 15 votes.

In Flow's Mallee broadcast region, Independent Ali Cupper was voted in for the electorate of Mildura, winning over Nationals Member Peter Crisp by a tight margin.

Southern Mallee Matters is an independent lobby group who were formed in the lead up to the election.

Their representatives live within the seat of Mildura and they state their motivations are based on "supporting a long-term vision for the growth and enhanced livability of our rural communities."

Spokesperson for Southern Mallee Matters, Daniel McLoughlin, spoke to Flow FM's Country Viewpoint today to discuss what happens now.
