Meet the Candidate Forums - All Candidates

It’s here.

I have waited a very long time to debate Barnaby Joyce in a live forum and to challenge his position on critical areas like water, energy and his lack of transparent decision-making, and tonight will be the first of these debates.

Despite his attempts to lay low, he has now agreed to attend 3 public “meet the candidate” forums and I encourage my supporters to join me at these events and affirm there is support for new leadership in the New England.

You can also show your support for my campaign by:

  • Head over to check out the recent website updates. Policies, past newsletters, FAQ’s and media mentions have all been added. My achievements page has had a lot of links added to showcase what I have already achieved for the electorate.

    The achievements, career and qualifications pages have moved up in the menu structure to make them easier to find. 

    Feel free to use the social media share buttons at the bottom of each page to share what is important to you.
