I love the strength and compassion of our community. So for me, the strength inspires me. I see that every day where people gather together and they, you know, come up with local solutions to local issues. They advocate for their community, their neighbour, their family, and they come together to make great things happen in our Valley. They stand together to be counted, and that’s really something that inspires me and it keeps me coming down to work every day.

And the other word I used was compassion and I think for me, that’s how we show our compassion for people and our community. You know, every day I see people working together, they’re looking after their neighbours, they’re checking on their family. You know, if there’s someone in need they rally together to, you know, to ensure that they’re supported and that, you know, they’re not left behind. And I think that is something that is really rare, it’s a rare find to see. And I’m really proud that I’m part of this community.

I absolutely love the Latrobe Valley and the wider Gippsland region. I did a lot of travel in my 20s right around Australia and overseas and I think you could go two ways. You either go, ‘I’m never going home’, or you get an appreciation for how good you’ve got…

The Latrobe Valley is so full of potential to create opportunities! We live in an area of prosperous soil, education precincts, gorgeous nature reserves, well-populated towns all with the benefit of being an hour from the beach and mountains and an hour and a half from the city with a…

The Valley can take us anywhere and I suppose we look up to those that have made it in whatever avenue they’ve taken, whether it’s science or education or whatever it is, sport.

There’s plenty of different heroes around town and it’s good that we can call them our own.
