Members Statement: Santo Spinello

Ms SPENCE — On a sad note, the Labor family in the north is devastated by the loss of our friend and comrade Santo Spinello, who passed away on 17 March. A life member of the Labor Party, Santo fought for Labor since joining in 1975. He was campaigning for Batman only hours before his passing, and two weeks earlier he was working with us at the Craigieburn Festival. I send my sincere condolences to Santo’s family: his wife, Sophie; his daughters,
Justine and Mel; and his beloved grandson, Brandon. Vale, Santo.
