Thursday 24 August 2017

Statement from the Leader of the Opposition

Fiona Richardson was a friend to so many of us on all sides of the Parliament.

She was a mother, Member of Parliament and a trailblazer who has changed our state and the lives of so many Victorians, particularly Victorian women.

Her legacy is one that her family and colleagues will look on with pride knowing she has genuinely changed our state for the better.

I send my sincere condolences to her husband Stephen, her children Marcus and Catherine and all her family, friends and colleagues who will be grieving her loss.

Today, the grief, shock and tragedy of Fiona’s passing will resonate throughout the halls of Parliament as we remember her.
