Member for Mildura
Opposition Whip in the Legislative Assembly
Jade Benham MP is the Member for Mildura and Opposition Whip in the Legislative Assembly, in the Victorian Parliament.
I am a second-generation Australian on my father’s side and a World War I soldier settler’s great-granddaughter on my mother’s. The Mallee is in my blood, and in the Mallee we fight. We always have. The entire Mildura electorate is a marvellous place.
Growing up on a stone fruit block, you might say that I have red dirt under my fingernails and Murray River water flowing through my veins. Born and educated in Swan Hill, I am proud to call the Mildura electorate my home. Serving as Mayor for 1 year gave me the opportunity to advocate for our community and region.
