There are people we meet who quietly yet powerfully leave an indelible mark. I want to pay tribute to such a person in my community, Ken Dowling. Ken passed away last month after a long battle with cancer. I have known Ken and his partner, Chris, for many years, and worked with Ken in his capacity of the driver, the champion and ultimately the deliverer of the magnificent redevelopment of Montrose Recreation Reserve.
I grieve for Victorians. I grieve that Victorians are subject to the dysfunctional circus that is this government. Almost three years ago Victorians went to the polls. They elected a government which pledged that accountability and transparency would be its principles, and they elected a Premier who promised 'no spin and no secrecy'.
