Who was Kimberley Kitching?
Senator Kitching was born in Brisbane and moved to Melbourne in 1995 after growing up there.
She sought for Labor preselection in the Victorian electorates of Lalor and Gellibrand in the 2013 federal election but was unsuccessful.
Senator Kitching gained preselection to occupy the Victorian Senate seat vacated by Stephen Conroy’s departure three years later, in 2016.
“As a former Queenslander who grew up swimming, a proud bearer of a bronze medallion, who continues to love swimming in Victoria’s chillier waters, I am scared but happy to be thrown in the deep end right here and now,” Senator Kitching said in her first address to parliament.
“I am conscious of the fact that just 591 Australians have ever served in the Senate,” she said.
“I’m aware that so much of what makes this country great comes from its ability to overcome difficulties.
“I’ve come to represent ordinary Australians.”
