Monto woman keeps region updated
MONTO resident Karen Williams has been busy keeping people updated on the election result through her Facebook page Electorate of Flynn – Federal Election 2016.
Mrs Williams said she was fascinated with the results.
“It’s been chopping and changing, you never can tell,” she said.
“I just find it fascinating like seeing how you can have a protest vote that will swing against one party and new parties will come along that will have a sudden rise in votes, politicians that are a bit smug might lose there seats, that’s a bit funny, it’s interesting watching how people vote.”
Mrs Williams said her and her husband followed politics enthusiastically.
“Hubby and I tend to watch elections as others watch footy finals, we get all into it,” she said.
“I take voting seriously, I always have.
“I know a lot of people hate it and find politics boring, but with the page I wanted to get the information out there that was easy for people to understand, as well try to make it impartial by not pushing my own political leanings, throwing in a bit of humour, so that people could have a little more knowledge than they already did.”
She said she hoped to continue and expand on her page at the next election.
“I’ve had people ask me if I had a website, which I’m hoping to do next time.”
