Member for Yan Yean Lauren Kathage has signalled her excitement about working closely with newly-appointed Victorian Premier Jacinta Allan.

Ms Kathage said Ms Allan’s commitment to the region had already been demonstrated through her frequent visits to the electorate and her prioritisation of construction of the Wallan ramps.

She said Ms Allan’s dedication to local infrastructure projects was a testament to her understanding of the needs of the community.

“I know that Premier Allan has a strong commitment to the development of our region,” Ms Kathage said.

“The Wallan ramps are a crucial project for our electorate, and Premier Allan’s previous visit and support show her dedication towards completing this key project.”

Ms Kathage also welcomed Ms Allan’s declaration that her government would place the interests of children and families at its core – aligning with Ms Kathage’s advocacy for the communities’ growing number of young families.

“Prioritising the wellbeing of children and families just makes sense,” Ms Kathage said.

“We know that when children get the best start in life, it sets them up for the best possible future.

“That’s why we have introduced free kinder for three and four-year olds, and it’s why we are increasing maternal and child health services.”

Ms Kathage said the new premier also brought a wealth of experience that was important to the electorate, with Ms Allan previously holding portfolios such as transport infrastructure and public transport – issues relevant to the growing electorate.

Ms Allan also visited the Bridge Inn Road site last month and surveyed the progress.

“Having someone with Premier Allan’s experience is invaluable,” Ms Kathage said.

“Her insights into transport and infrastructure will help us address the pressing issues facing our electorate.

“The Premier recently met one-on-one with a resident in Donnybrook to hear firsthand about some of the improvements that are needed. This is a down-to-earth Premier who knows how to get things done

“Premier Allan’s regional background ensures that the concerns and aspirations of communities outside the CBD are heard and addressed.

“I look forward to continuing to work closely with her to bring positive improvements to our region.”

Ms Kathage has already met with Ms Allan to discuss local issues.

“I have spoken with our new Premier a number of times since she took on her new job. I am excited for what her and I can do together for this electorate,” Ms Kathage said.
