Tim Richardson, since 2014.
South-eastern Melbourne. Mordialloc covers the suburbs of Aspendale, Chelsea, Chelsea Heights, Cheltenham, Edithvale, Mentone, Mordialloc and Parkdale. Most of the electorate lives in the City of Kingston, as well as a small part in the Greater Dandenong council area.
Mordialloc was created in 1992. It was won by the Liberal Party at its first three elections and has been held by the ALP since 2002.
Mordialloc was won in 1992 by the Liberal Party’s Geoff Leigh. Leigh was first elected in 1982 in a by-election in the seat of Malvern, which had been vacated by recently defeated Liberal Premier Lindsay Thompson following the 1982 election.
Leigh moved to Mordialloc in 1992, and held the seat until his defeat in 2002.
Janice Munt won Mordialloc for the ALP in 2002. Munt was re-elected in 2006. In 2010, Munt was defeated by Liberal candidate Lorraine Wreford. Wreford held the seat for one term, losing in 2014 to Labor’s Tim Richardson.
