Join us as we host The Hon Melissa Horne MP at our next Melbourne RA Leaders’ lunch. These lunches are complimentary for RA members to attend and are an opportunity for an open discussion with senior industry leaders. Registration is no guarantee of a place and we will advise in due course if your expression of interest is successful.

Our speaker: The Hon. Melissa Horne MP
Topic of address: Road Safety 

Melissa is the Member for Williamstown, and Minister for Casino, Gaming and Liquor Regulation, Roads and Road Safety, Ports and Freight, and Local Government.

Growing up, Melissa watched the area she grew up in buffeted by economic challenges that saw industries and employment disappear and working people face enormous and unforeseen challenges. Both of Melissa’s parents were school teachers who instilled strong public sector and public education values in her.
Melissa has enjoyed a long career at senior levels of government and corporate Victoria, overseeing projects and policies which have helped change lives for the better. She has played her part in delivering responsible gaming reforms and led efforts to engage the community in level crossing removals across Melbourne.
Melissa moved to Melbourne’s Western Suburbs with her husband Alex and two sons in the late 1990s and has called the area home ever since.
Melissa is honoured to represent the electorate of Williamstown, the Western Suburbs is the spiritual heartland of the Victorian Labor Party and she is humbled to follow the legacy of former MPs such as Joan Kirner, Steve Bracks and Wade Noonan.
