About Tony Milne
I am the son of working class parents in Invercargill. As a family we had little money, but my parents worked hard to give my brother, sisters and me opportunities. My upbringing taught me to fight alongside David's as they take on Goliath's.
I've spent five years working in politics and nine years working in health, addictions and social services. I am currently the Executive Officer for Make Poverty History Australia and was previously the National Manager of Public Health for the Problem Gambling Foundation.
I’m passionate about social justice and am an experienced campaigner who builds teams.
