On behalf of our Government, I am pleased to confirm Mary-Anne Thomas has today been sworn in as a member of our Cabinet.
Since her election in 2014, Mary-Anne has been an unwavering voice for the people of her community – and people in regional communities across our state.
She'll bring that same determined sense of advocacy and enthusiasm as our state's new Minister for Regional Development and Minister for Agriculture.
Stepping into the big shoes of Jill Hennessy as Victoria’s new Attorney-General is Jaclyn Symes.
Not only does Jaclyn have the necessary skills and background, she has a fierce commitment to carry on the work of reforming our justice system that I know makes her right for this role.
She will also continue in her responsibilities as Leader of the Government in the Legislative Council and Minister for Resources.
Sonya Kilkenny, our hard-working Member for Carrum, will serve as our new Cabinet Secretary.
We also welcome a few other changes to our team.
Steve Dimopoulos, currently serving as Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier, will also serve as Parliamentary Secretary for Mental Health – bringing a continued focus to this critical area of our reform agenda.
Harriet Shing will also add to her responsibilities, bringing her technical experience in governance and in working with regional communities to her new role as Parliamentary Secretary for Water.
Finally, we welcome former paramedic and Victorian Secretary of Ambulance Employees Australia, Steve McGhie, as Parliamentary Secretary for Health.
Anyone who knows Steve knows he brings his abiding commitment to ensuring every Victorian receives the healthcare and compassion they so deserve.
As a team, and as a Government, we’ll continue to serve the people of this great state – and continue to put people first
