In November 2018, Andy Meddick was proudly elected as the Animal Justice Party Member of the Legislative Council for Western Victoria.
After growing up on the central coast in NSW, he has called the beautiful Surf Coast in Western Victoria home for many years. Andy lives with April and their two amazing children, their rescue greyhound, rescue shitzu and three cats.
Andy has been a dedicated animal rights campaigner for many years, and from early on recognised the critical role that the Australian parliamentary system plays in creating positive change for animals. He has devoted many years to the Animal Justice Party, volunteering in many roles including on the State Committee and the Policy Team, and was instrumental in the growth and direction of the Western Victoria Regional Group, as well as guiding the growth of the now independent Ballarat Sub-Branch.
Andy has been a long-time campaigner against duck shooting, live export, jumps racing, greyhound racing, animal circuses and rodeos, and the horrific 1080 poison. We're so proud to have him taking this fight into the Victorian Parliament, where he has not only held the Victorian state government accountable for their decisions that lead to immense animal suffering but has bettered this by securing funding and reform commitments from them.
