It’s been six months since my last post. Amazing this blog has lasted as long as it has.
The Sydney by-election is upon is, and the question is whom to vote for.
The candidates are, in no particular order:
Shayne Mallard – Liberal Party
Alex Greenwich – Clover Moore endorsed Independent
Chris Harris – Greens
Robyn Peebles – Christian Democrats
Glenn Wall – Independent
No idea who Glenn Wall is, although a search indicates he lives near Mudgee and someone with his name has been elected to Dungog Council.
So – who to vote for? It’s a very unsatisfactory choice, with the decision by the NSW ALP to not run a candidate. See also here. Three local ALP members had indicated that they were willing to run in the by-election.
I’ll write more about this soon.
NB: I’m President of the ALP Sydney State Electoral Council, and was the ALP candidate for the state seat of the Sydney in the 2011 state election.
