Adam Blakester visits Inverell

Climate change a hot topic for independent candidate's Inverell visit

Climate change and a so-called "crisis of government" were hot topics for locals meeting with independent candidate for New England Adam Blakester at the Riverside garden on Thursday. Running a campaign he describes as "doing democracy, not politics", Mr Blakester is touring the region intent on developing "a baker's dozen" of policies based on the desires of voters.
