The election is over in Victoria and both the seat of Benambra and Ovens Valley have been decided.
Whilst Tim McCurdy won his seat back in Ovens valley, albeit with a reduced margin, Bill Tilley in Benambra had a battle on his hands with two strong Independents in Jacqui Hawkins and Jenny O'Connor.
Independent Jacqui Hawkins says she is very proud of the campaign her team yellow ran and how close it was.
"We've finally got a result and what a result it is, it took over 10 days after the election and the final vote count we've just found ourselves sitting 2,000 votes behind Bill Tilley so who would have thought we'd get this close and it would get down to preferences".
Ms Hawkins says she will now go back to work with her community.
"We've set out to make it marginal and oh haven't we done that. I'm going to resume the work that I've been doing with the Border Trust and Coalition, I truly do love where I live, the community and people and I'll always be passionate about it's growth and development. I won't be going anywhere anytime soon, but I'll be focussing my energy back into my continuing roles".
