Fo­rum to meet those stand­ing

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

With the Vic­to­rian State elec­tion just weeks away, a timely ‘Meet the Can­di­dates’ fo­rum is be­ing held to­mor­row at 7 pm at the Unit­ing Church in Craw­ford St.

There are four can­di­dates vy­ing for the seat of Euroa: in­cum­bent Steph Ryan (The Na­tion­als), Fionna Dep­peler-Mor­ton (La­bor), Don Firth (in­de­pen­dant) and Kep­pel Cas­sidy (Greens).

All four have con­firmed they will be at­tend­ing the fo­rum.

Can­di­dates will give a four-minute in­tro­duc­tion on them­selves and their poli­cies, and will then be given two min­utes to an­swer ques­tions.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers can bring their ques­tions or write them on ar­rival by 6.30 pm, and they will be handed di­rectly to mod­er­a­tor John Keefe and an­swered first. Time per­mit­ting, ques­tions from the floor will be taken af­ter that.

A light sup­per will fol­low, giv­ing peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to chat with can­di­dates and get clar­i­fi­ca­tion on some­thing of in­ter­est to them.

‘‘It is im­por­tant that we make an in­formed choice as the elected mem­bers will be there for the next four years, so we hope a large num­ber of vot­ers will at­tend, en­sur­ing a good va­ri­ety of ques­tions,’’ The Sey­mour We Want mem­ber Pat Cof­fey said.
