Election 2018 - Shepparton candidates at Victorian Farmers Federation event
November 08, 2018 Robert McLean

All five candidates for the Seat of Shepparton in the November 24 Victorian State Election were brought together to talk about themselves (a little) and expand on what they would do for the Goulburn Valley should they win a seat in the State Parliament. More than 60 people were at the "meet the candidates" event and as it was staged by the Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) most in the room were either farmers or people from within the community conscious of the importance of farmers and farming to the economy,
Climate change was barely mentioned although most were agitated about water, primarily the lack of it, but few, it appeared to grasp the reality that it was our disrupted climate systems that is the prime driver of water shortages.
