We find out what makes Catherine King tick

CATHERINE KING BALLARAT MHR APR 2019 316027912409887 5740744573068509184 n

If you believe the current state of the polls, Ballarat Federal Labor MP Catherine King is almost certain to become our next Health Minister.

We've seen her out-and-about and in the media since she was elected in 2001, but what was she doing before that? 

Did you know that her dad built caravans...?

Or that she is the youngest of a large family..? 

Catherine King is coming close to the record of longest-serving Ballarat MHR.

Dudley Irwin (Liberal) served from 10 December 1955 to 11 November 1975.

The first Ballarat MHR was Alfred Deakin (1901-1913).
