Statement from Danny O’Brien MP
I’m pleased to have been promoted to the Victorian Shadow Cabinet as the Shadow Minister for Sport, Veterans, and Gaming and Liquor Regulation.
I look forward to taking on these responsibilities, in addition to representing the needs of the Gippsland South community.
Sport is what makes most of our local communities tick and the local football and netball club is often the heartbeat, particularly of small country towns.
Likewise, our RSLs do a fantastic job supporting our veterans, while hotels act as a social and economic hub in many of our communities.
I will be working hard to ensure the Andrews Labor Government is kept honest in these areas and also to deliver policies from the Liberal Nationals that will help strengthen our sporting clubs and the veteran community.
It will be important too, to ensure a strong framework for the liquor and gaming sector that is well regulated and minimises harm.
I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting into the new portfolio while retaining the people of Gippsland South as my number one priority.
