CATHY McGowan says Sophie Mirabella made her a better politician and parliamentarian.

In an extended interview with the Wangaratta Chronicle, featured in Friday’s edition, Indi’s first elected federal MP, who defeated the then Liberal incumbent in 2013, and again in 2016, said the strong competition Mrs Mirabella bought really ensured she had to ‘step up’.

Mrs McGowan also reflected on her six years in office, talks about the 2019 election campaign which saw her anointed successor Helen Haines continue the Independent status of Indi, and her plans for the future.
