Members statements – Santo Spinello

Mr J. BULL — It is also with a very heavy heart that I rise to speak of the passing of Santo Spinello. Santo joined the ALP in 1975, tirelessly advocating for Labor values and beliefs. He has been described as a linchpin and a central pillar of the labour movement in the north, and I could not agree more with this. Whether it was time on election day booths or doorknocking across the north of Victoria, Santo never gave up and continually pushed the limits. He went well above and beyond his duties. He was a true Labor man whose contribution, passion, kindness and dedication to the cause will never be forgotten. My thoughts are with the Spinello family at this time. They have my deepest condolences.
