Conversations for change: Gloucester Monday 14 March 2016
Even with a blackout across the region, pouring rain and thunder claps, 62 Gloucester residents came to enjoy a candlelit community conversation with Julie Lyford (Greens candidate for Lyne) and Michael Osborne ( Newcastle Greens councillor and Greens Senate candidate for NSW).
Robust questions on employment, water issues, federal grants for infrastructure and roads, senate reform and voting rights, penalty rates, council amalgamations and refugee policy were high on the agenda.
Thanks to the GreenLyne team who worked their magic with tea, coffee and scones with no power!
This successful evening was a great start to the Lyne campaign with ‘conversations for change’ – we will be visiting communities in the electorate to hear your issues, concerns and ideas for sustainable and liveable futures.
Please get in touch as we travel the electorate over the coming months.
Regional and rural communities are a vital part of Australia’s future. Every Australian is entitled to play a strong role in the decisions that affect their lives.
Are we ready for exciting and progressive transitions towards a renewable economy? What are your ideas and issues? Come and share a cuppa with Julie.
Your vote is your voice. Your voice needs to be heard!
