“People have asked me what has brought me to this point of wanting to be a politician. I’m not sure I wanted to be a politician. What I want, is to make the world a better place. Politics right now needs strong representative leadership with the skills and life experience to advocate for a diverse range of people and complex challenges. I commit to consulting with my electorate and will strive to deliver for my electorate. My aim is to provide reason for the people of Mallee to respect and trust politics and politicians again.”

– Anne Webster, maiden speech, 1st August 2019

I believe that when the regions of Australia are growing, all of Australia prospers.
