John Mansfield Brumby (born 21 April 1953), Australian Labor Party politician, is the 45th Premier of Victoria, assuming office on 30 July 2007 after the resignation of Steve Bracks. He also serves as the Minister for Veterans' Affairs and the Minister for Multicultural Affairs.
John Brumby was born in Melbourne and educated at Ivanhoe Grammar School and then later, Melbourne Grammar School and the University of Melbourne, where he graduated in Commerce (BCom) in 1974, and at the State College of Victoria at Rusden, where he completed a Diploma of Education (DipEd) in 1975. He was a teacher at Eaglehawk High School, near Bendigo in central Victoria, from 1976 to 1979. From 1979 to 1983 he was an employee of the Victorian Teachers Union. He was also active in the Australian Labor Party.
In 1983 John Brumby was elected to the Australian House of Representatives for the seat of Bendigo, which he held until his defeat in 1990. A member of the Labor Unity faction, he was a strong supporter of Prime Minister Bob Hawke and an opponent of the Socialist Left faction, which historically had its stronghold in the Victorian branch of the Labor Party.
