Feedback to your questions.
We received a lot of chatter via email and Face Book after the election. We appreciate all comments good and questioning why we did or didn't do something.
Why did you not advertise in newspapers and T.V. ?
Given the short time line we were geared up for the election in 2022.
Time was short. a lot of the paper advertising was pre booked as some in parliament knew the election would be called early.
To place one 1/4 page ad in the newspaper is over $1.200 extrapolate that 9 times it is very expensive. With the media the more you spend with them them they will give you editorials.
Why did you not release your policies?
We released our policies and media releases during the campaign. The media did not pick them all up. It appears if you spend $'s with the media they will mention and print your media releases.
Why did you have three candidates in Franklin and one in Lyons?
We called for candidates to register for the State Election preselection on the 3rd March. This was 17 months ahead of the expected State Election. We would have loved to have a full ticket for each electorate as it helps with preferences. We also like people who live in the area to preselect for their area. Knowledge of the area and issues is paramount.
Ever considered becoming a councilor?
The last few elections have shown that the local councils are more and more a becoming a breeding ground for up and coming State and Federal politicians. As shown by the need for By elections below.
By-elections announced for Glenorchy City, Kingborough and West Coast councils
With the election of Kristie Johnston and Dean Winter to Parliament, and the resignation of Phil Vickers on 30 April, three councils require by-elections for one councillor and one mayor positions each.
If you are considering standing as a councilor in your local council talk to us.
