Shelley Payne, Labor’s candidate for O’Connor, is running in the upcoming federal election to fight for better schools and hospitals and a fair go for her community.
As a local councillor, Shelley is very active in the Esperance community and has a strong relationship with local businesses and industries.
Shelley moved to Esperance 17 years ago, and she and her husband are proudly raising their school aged children in the community.
As an engineer and a mother, Shelley is a passionate advocate for education, and will fight for every child to have the best start in life, with properly funded schools.
Shelley believes that your health should depend on your Medicare card, not your credit card, and will fight for better access to health and mental health services in regional Western Australia.
The south west is home to some of Australia’s most beautiful natural environments. Shelley is committed to real action on climate change to protect the environment for future generations.
