My name is Grace Portolesi and I am your Labor candidate for Hartley.
I was honoured to serve as the Member for Hartley from 2006-2014 and as a Minister from 2009-2014. During that time we managed to see major upgrades to infrastructure, new investment in our schools and together we saved the Italian Consulate.
After seeing four years of inaction from the current member I decided that I couldn't stand on the sidelines and watch our great community lose out. We need a local member who will stand up for our East, who will fight for our community and who will secure the funding and investment that we need for the next generation.
I will always stand up for Hartley.
