TONY Morton has been appointed Melbourne's new chief public transport campaigner.
Mr Morton, 41 was elected the president of the Public Transport Users Association at the organisation's annual general meeting tonight. He ran unopposed for the role and replaced outgoing president Daniel Bowen, who held the position for nine years.
Mr Morton said his predecessor had left big shoes to fill and the PTUA would continue to take the fight to government for transport policy.
''It was the people who promised change that were elected and the people who didn't who were defeated,'' Mr Morton, has served on the committee since 1996 and as secretary since 1994, said.
''No one was promising an expansion of roads, the PTUA will continue to remind everyone of this.''
Mr Bowen said his successor was a great campaigner.
