Danielle Louise Green (born 19 September 1963) is an Australian politician, currently serving as the member for Yan Yean in the Victorian Legislative Assembly. She represents the Australian Labor Party.
Before entering Parliament she was an electoral officer for Andre Haermeyer before a redistribution turned Yan Yean into a notionally Liberal seat. Haermeyer chose to contest Kororoit at the 2002 election. Green won Labor preselection. Amid the massive Labor wave that swept Victoria in that election, Green won on a swing of over 10 percent, turning Yan Yean into a safe Labor seat in one stroke.
Green describes herself as being "active in many local community groups, including (her) local CFA as well as being the No.1 ticket holder of the Greensborough Hockey Club."
Following the Victorian state election, 2006, Green was appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Police & Emergency Services.
After Labor's loss at the Victorian state election, 2010, Green was appointed as Shadow Minister for Disability Services, Health Promotion, Emergency Services & Volunteers. Since that time, Green also held responsibility for the Child Safety & Women's Affairs portfolios. In a reshuffle announced in December 2013, Green was appointed as Shadow Minister for Preventing Family Violence and Shadow Minister for Health Promotion & Women.
At the Victorian state election, 2014, Green was re-elected with a 4% swing and was subsequently appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Tourism, Major Events and Regional Victoria.
