Labor confirms candidates

LABOR has confirmed its state election candidates for Gippsland South and Gippsland East.

Lynn Psaila will contest the seat Gippsland South against Nationals incumbent and Deputy Premier Peter Ryan. Ms Psaila is currently the personal assistant to the Labor state secretary and an unsuccessful candidate for the senate at last year’s federal election.

Kate Maxfield, the daughter of former Labor Narracan MLA Ian Maxfield, will take on Local Government and Aboriginal Affairs Minister Tim Bull in Gippsland East.

The line-up for candidates will be confirmed Friday afternoon.
