Samantha Dunn

MLC for Eastern Metropolitan

I care about you and your family. I am a strong voice for you in Parliament, representing our shared vision to improve the East's liveability and standing up for forests, public transport, cycling and road safety.

I've grown up in the east of Melbourne, my family moved here back in the 1970's. My background is working in finance and administration in both the private and not for profit sector. I know what it's like to access distant health services, the challenge of finding local education options and the constant battle travelling to work. The East is a great place to live, but it's under pressure. I understand the issues that impact on people in the region.

I want our children to grow up in a city that looks after future generations, both young and old. I want public transport to be a viable way for us to get around. I want clean energy to power our houses, action on climate change and a healthy environment with open spaces for us all to enjoy. I'm a strong advocate for improved public transport and passionate about biodiversity, better planning laws, economic development and responding to climate change.

I will be a strong voice for the people of Eastern Metropolitan and a healthy and sustainable future. ​

Ms DUNN (Eastern Metropolitan) — My question is for the Minister for Agriculture. Is the minister aware that Ignite Energy, the advanced lignite development plant in Morwell, intends to use native forest wood as a fuel source in the development site as well as brown coal?

Ms PULFORD (Minister for Agriculture) — I thank Ms Dunn for her question. The project that she refers to is not one with which I am immediately familiar. I know that the Greens in their relentless pursuit of documents —
