EIGHTEEN-year-old Josef Boltezar will vote for the first time tomorrow and agreed the political understanding among young people is a concern. Josef spoke up at the recent Goulburn Post Meet the Candidates forum to grill the attending candidates...
heard their policies. We've heard their political pitches. But what do we know
about the Hume candidates as people - their interests and likes? We asked each
to answer a few questions. Here are the answers of those who replied.
SEVEN Hume hopefuls were put to the test on Thursday night when they collectively faced the people of Goulburn for the first time. More than 100 people packed into the Workers Club auditorium for the Goulburn Post/Rostrum Meet the Candidates night.
It was the best attended Hume forum in Goulburn for many years with well over 150 people in attendance. Seven of the nine Hume candidates attended and each had the opportunity to have their say. Here's some interent reaction.
Mr Pilbrow believes he has what it takes to become the first Labor Member for Hume in more than 39 years and in the coming weeks he will take the fight to the Coalition, campaigning strongly on completing the NBN, education reforms and protection of workers’ rights.
Thrown into an entirely different electorate to that which he is familiar, Mr Cornelius has grasped the challenge with a firm handshake and a determination to not let the major party candidates’ tower over the competition.
There are only two weeks to go in the campaign. For those of you who followed it since February... or last November (as this column has) that will come as a blessed relief. But don't let campaign fatigue get to you just yet.
One question – one straight to the point response. That’s the brief we put to candidates for our election ‘Q & A sessions’ leading up to the September 7 poll. Each question has a Goulburn focus and candidates are asked to respond in about 200 words.
