Jeff Drayton is Labor's candidate for the Upper Hunter by-election.
He was born and raised in the Upper Hunter, where he and his wife Susan have been raising their own family for 25 years.
He's worked in the region for his entire working life. He worked at the Rosemount Estate Winery, repaired power lines for Energy Australia as a lineman, and spent ten years underground as a coal miner.
Jeff knows how important good jobs are and is going to fight for jobs in the Upper Hunter.
The current Government has delivered nothing but cuts to this community. There's no clearer example than TAFE.
The Nationals have gutted Singleton TAFE, and now they're selling off the Scone TAFE campus too.
The Upper Hunter deserves better.
It’s time that the workers of Upper Hunter had a real voice in state parliament.
Jeff Drayton will be that voice.
