Sally Branson has been appointed The National Party of Victoria’s State Director. 

Victorian President Peter Schwarz today welcomed the appointment of Sally to this role, as an eminently qualified professional who will provide strong leadership for the party.

Sally has worked extensively across rural and regional Australia in community development and in senior public affairs roles in both the private sector and in international diplomatic and defence relations.

Along with her professional qualifications and post graduate studies in regional development, Sally brings to the role her great love for rural Victoria and passion for the parliamentary system. She looks forward to working together with both the members and Parliamentary team to ensure country voices are well represented in Victoria’s political and social conversations.
