Roy Butler – Independent Roy Butler

In 2019 the electorate of Barwon broke with nearly 70 years of tradition, tossing out the National Party and electing Roy Butler, who was then a member of the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers (SFF) party. It was a time of drought, the worst in the European history of Australia, and people in the electorate were feeling the results of decades of neglect by the party they had so loyally re-elected for so long.
