About Roma

Shadow Minister for Rural Roads
Shadow Minister for Ports and Freight
Member for South-West Coast

Roma lives on a dairy farm in Woolsthorpe she runs with her husband Glenn. A mother of four, Roma is a community and dairy industry leader.

Roma was the recipient of the 2009 National and Victorian Rural Woman of the Year award and is a Nuffield Scholar.

As a leader in Victorian agricultural, Roma has served as the Vice President of the United Dairy Farmers of Victoria, is presently a Board member of the Geoffrey Gardiner Dairy Foundation and is a past Chair of the WestVic Dairy which focused on developing the South West dairy industry.

Roma is also a qualified nurse and has worked in healthcare in the South West for 30 years and she is a member of the Woolsthorpe Primary School Council.

Roma understands that South West Coast needs a strong local voice to carry on the work of retiring local MP, Dr Denis Napthine. Denis’ contribution to our local community has delivered real progress.

To build on Denis’ achievements, South West Coast needs a strong voice in State Parliament. Without a strong voice, our local community is at risk of being left behind under a city-centric Labor Government run by Daniel Andrews.

Roma will be that strong local voice in State Parliament and will stand up for the issues that really matter to South West Coast.

As part of her plan for South West Coast, Roma will fight to:

  • Fix our local roads by reinstating the Country Roads and Bridges maintenance program cut by the Andrews Labor Government;
  • Gain vital funding for Stage 2 of the Warrnambool Hospital redevelopment;
  • Build a new, larger Portland Bay School for students with special needs;
  • Support local families by establishing a jobs taskforce with local businesses and community leaders to generate local employment; and
  • Tackle the scourge of Ice by developing a South West Coast Ice Action Plan, focusing on prevention, rehabilitation and punishment for those who push drugs in our community.

Working with the community Roma Britnell will deliver what matters to South West Coast families.
