JASON Modica is “exactly the sort of leader we need in Canberra” according to Mildura MP Ali Cupper.

Ms Cupper yesterday publicly endorsed Mr Modica in today’s federal election saying the Mildura deputy mayor and independent candidate was the ideal choice for Mallee.

“What I’m trying to do is encourage people to vote independent and personally I can vouch for Jake because I’ve worked him for a number of years,” she said.

“Ray (Kingston) and Cecilia (Moar) I don’t know, but I’m certainly encouraging people to put them high up on the list.

“And to put the Nats last because they now represent a failed brand, a brand that has lost touch with its own values and mission and certainly the values and missions of the broader community.

“They are the biggest electoral threat because it’s been (a) safe (seat) for so long. I’m suggesting to put the Nats last to make that point.”
