Mr BROADBENT (Monash) (13:37): It's an honour and a privilege to stand here today as the inaugural member for the seat of Monash. Having been once or twice in this House, I was honoured to be in the presence of the member for Bass and the member for Herbert, who will be future long-term members of this House. Having been the member for Corinella and McMillan on two occasions, and now the member for Monash, I recognise the great honour that was bestowed upon me by the people of those electorates. I thank not only the people of those electorates but also my campaign team in the Liberal Party of Victoria. In my campaign team I thank Bill Westhead; Gary Blackwood, member for Narracan; Mary Aldred; Aaron Brown; Kay Clements; Wayne Farnham; Matt Green and Julie Pike. I thank my amazing office staff: Annelise Answerth; Tony Cantwell; Jenny Hammett; Laurie Jolley; Millie McLean and Ken Mitchell. They are the amazing staff who support me so well. I thank all my branches right across the electorate of Monash—named after the great Sir John Monash. There is one group that is very special, my family: Bron, Evan, Sian, Paul, Emma, Em, Kate, Griff, Bo and Lal. My thanks go to all of them. To be the member for Monash is a new beginning, a new start and a new era.
