(Wednesday, 25 November 2020): In sad news I reflect on the passing of Charles McLean, who died earlier this week. Charles was a long-term member of the Labor Party. Spurred by the damage caused by the Kennett government, he was passionate about helping the party and joined the Epping branch. He quickly made friends, was a regular attendee at branch meetings and pitched in with campaigning whenever he was needed. In the words of Pam McLeod, branch secretary, the community has lost a great gentleman. Indeed he was a wonderful man who will be greatly missed. Vale, Charles McLean.
