Vote early, vote often

Today the people of North Sydney must decide who will represent them in Canberra in the House of Representatives. MP Joe Hockey retired early, which meant a by-election costing taxpayers approximately $1.5 million had to be held, even though there will be a federal election sometime next year. There are 13 candidates in today’s poll, ranging from strong independents to more of the same white males, to new faces in brand new parties, passionate about bringing new ideas to the Australian political landscape.

I’m really hoping the fine people of the lower North Shore vote for change, that they put their faith in a candidate with fresh ideas not the one with the huge budget for self-promotion and out-of-date policies. I hope they’ll vote for a candidate who wants to recognise indigenous people in our constitution, improve our environment, and make education, health and the arts as their top priorities and the woman who will best serve the electorate.
