[dropcap style=”font-size: 60px; color: #A02F2F;”] A[/dropcap] little bit of history will be made on Sunday (Sept 20) if, as suspected, the Liberal Party endorses a woman candidate to run for the plum seat of South West Coast for the Oct 31 by-election.
While young Tom Napthine (son of Denis) is also in the mix, the money is on either dairy advocate Roma Britnell (left), of Woolsthorpe, or former Macedon MP Donna Petrovich (centre). Glenelg Shire Cr Anita Rank (right) is also running, but not generating quite as much ‘chatter’ as her pre-selection colleagues.
Either way, it will be a first to see a female Liberal candidate running for either the seat of South West Coast or its predecessors Warrnambool and Portland.
