Member for Morwell, Russell Northe today in Parliament paid tribute to the former member for Gippsland South, Peter Ryan for his incredible service to his community and the Parliament of Victoria.
Mr Northe said Peter has been an outstanding advocate for the Gippsland South electorate and regional Victoria over the past 22 years.
Peter was first elected into the Victorian Parliament Legislative Assembly as the member for Gippsland South in 1992.
Peter had 15 years of outstanding leadership to the Nationals and four years as Deputy Premier of Victoria, with his focus always being to provide better opportunities and service for his electorate and regional Victorians.
His passion for regional Victoria has been outstanding and he will leave Parliament with a strong record on delivering for Victoria with the establishment of the $1 Billion Regional Growth Fund.
I wish Peter, Trish and their children Sarah, Julian and James every success for the future.
