160531_Bugle Ad_260mm by 60mm-page-001 As the country settles in for the longest Federal election campaign ever, Minnamurra Progress Association has organised the only opportunity to meet the five declared candidates for Gilmore.

They are: Ann Sudmalis (Liberal), Fiona Phillips (Labor), Carmel McCallum (Greens), Steve Ryan (Christian Democratic) and Daniel Smith (21st Century).

The Bugle June 1 Final(1)Anyone else wanting to throw their hat into the ring has until 9 June. The draw for ballot positions is likely to happen on 10 June.Phillips_120x100h_AD_OL_PQ-page-001

Gilmore is considered marginal, although a redistribution which incorporated the northern reaches of the electorate into the new seat of Whitlam (formerly Throsby) is thought to have increased Ann Sudmalis’ two party preferred margin to 3.8%, from 2.7%. The Liberal Party has held the seat since 1996.

Each of the five candidates will be invited to speak for six minutes about their experience, policies and plans for the area.

There will then be open questions to the candidates for around 30 minutes, followed by the chance to speak one-on-one over coffee, tea and cakes.

Details: Tues 7 June, 7.30pm sharp at the Progress Hall, Minnamurra Public School, Charles Ave
