Damian Drum, The Nationals Member for Northern Victoria, resigned from the Victorian Parliament which took effect on Friday 27 May 2016.

“Damian Drum has been an outstanding representative for the people of Northern Victoria during his 14 years in the State Parliament,” Peter Walsh, Victorian Leader of The Nationals said.

“During his time in State Parliament, Damian has been a fierce advocate for the people of Northern Victoria,” Mr Walsh said.

“So many community projects, initiatives and investments are up and running today because of Damian Drum’s determined representation.

“Damian never shied from hard work and his proven track record for delivering saw him promoted with responsibilities including Minister and Leader of The Nationals in the Legislative Council.

“While we will miss him in our Parliamentary team, we are heartened that Drummy’s passion for his community continues to burn brightly.

“On behalf of The Victorian Nationals, we wish Drummy all the very best in his bid to be the Federal representative for the electorate of Murray,” Mr Walsh concluded.
