THE Australian Country Party (ACP) has confirmed that former Wangaratta councillor Dr Julian Fidge will stand for preselection in Ovens Valley ahead of this year’s Victorian state election.
He has cited his desire to build the region’s economy as his main driver behind another run at the MP role.
Dr Fidge ran against National Party incumbent Tim McCurdy at the last state election and secured 9.4 per cent of the primary vote.
