Ryan election forum Aug 18th - hosted by Transition Kenmore

Our local seat of Ryan is shaping up to be one of the most interesting contests in the federal election. Taking in much of Brisbane westerns suburbs and stretching along the Brisbane river from Milton to Karana Downs but also over Mt Coot-tha to include suburbs like The Gap the race in Ryan looks tight.

Transition Kenmore's monthly meeting next Wednesday 18th will be a candidates forum where everyone is welcome to come and hear from the candidates and ask questions on a range of topics.

Already confirmed are:
Sandra Bayley - candidate for The Greens
Michael Johnson - Indepedenant and current member for Ryan
Steven Miles - candidate for the ALP

Jane Prentice and the Family First candidate have also been invited.

  1. Thank you for letting us know about these forums.

  2. The 12 and 18 August forums should cover slightly different ground, so if you can, try to make it to both.

  3. For a preview, see Sandra Bayley's 12 August speech at her campaign site, including audience scores for the candidates. The TT forum will have slightly different topics but this gives you some idea what to expect.
