Manjimup-born Deputy Opposition Leader Liza Harvey visited her home town again last week to speak at the Anne McKay address.

The address was held at the town hall, where Ms Harvey spoke of her journey from living in small country towns to becoming a Member of the Legislative Assembly of WA.

In her speech Ms Harvey said she never thought she would end up in politics.

“I was watching the election in 2005 and the Liberal Party lost and I turned to my husband and said, ‘I am going to join that party and sort them out’.”

As well as being Deputy Opposition Leader, Ms Harvey is the Scarborough MLA and Opposition Minister for Transport, Planning and Lands.
