Meet the candidates

31 Aug 2010

With one election behind us, Docklands faces another in late November when Victoria goes to the polls.

So what can Docklands voters expect from their candidates?  Come along to a special evening on Thursday, October 21 to hear directly from the Greens, Labor and Liberal candidates.

Docklands News has organised the three major candidates to each speak for 10 minutes and then answer questions from Docklands voters.

The subject will be strictly about what each candidate can specifically do for Docklands, and questions on other topics and matter will not be entertained.

The event is being held at 7.30 pm at the Harbour Kitchen, which is under the Bourke St NAB headquarters on the Victoria Harbour side.

The candidates are:

  • Greens – Brian Walters
  • Labor – Bronwyn Pike (sitting member)
  • Liberal – Luke Martin

Each candidate will be given 10 minutes to explain what they would do for Docklands if they were elected to the lower house seat of Melbourne on November 27.

Following that, questions from the floor will be directed to candidates via event chairman Docklands News editor Shane Scanlan.  Only questions of direct relevance to Docklands will be allowed.

Mr Scanlan said the night was designed to give Docklanders a personal look at their political candidates.

“Most of the major issues facing Docklands can be resolved at the State Government level so let’s see how the candidates respond,” Mr Scanlan said.

Harbour Kitchen will be open for business, so why not come out and meet your fellow Docklands residents in a social setting.
