Statement on Peta Murphy, Member for Dunkley

Vale Peta Murphy.

The Committee for Frankston & Mornington Peninsula expresses its deep sadness at the tragic passing of Federal Member for Dunkley, Peta Murphy.

Peta was a hardworking, dedicated leader in our community. She stood up for those who often lacked the ability to stand up for themselves.

Peta was always generous with her time, and we were incredibly fortunate to have hosted her for an event in Langwarrin last month where she was knowledgeable, thoughtful and humorous.

Her health battles did not define her. In fact, Peta’s courage, dedication and commitment to make a difference during this time is what our community will be eternally grateful for.

Peta has left a remarkable legacy on our community. Our thoughts are with her husband Rod, her family, friends, and colleagues.
