A social worker, small business operator, researcher and mother-of-three believes she brings the right mix of skills and perspective to the National Party to ensure the party’s long-term success in the Wimmera-Mallee.
Anne Webster has joined fellow candidates Russell McKenzie, Andrew Broad, Reid Mather, Michael Adamson and Greg Cruickshank in contesting pre-selection for the Nationals for the seat of Mallee.
Mallee, held by the Nationals’ John Forrest for 20 years and one of the safest conservative seats in Australia, will become vacant when Mr Forrest retires at the Federal Election later this year.
Ms Webster moved to Mildura as a newly-wed 35 years ago and said she was now keen to give back to the region where she and her husband have made their home and raised their family.
“I love the Mallee – it’s a wonderful place to work, live and enjoy life, but I have some valuable new perspectives to offer about what will be important to our region in future,” Ms Webster said.
“Being able to listen, understand and advocate for others has been fundamental to my experience and education in social work, and I think it will be the crucial skill in being the parliamentary representative for Mallee.”
