The ‘orange’ supporters to choose a successor to McGowan
VOICES for Indi (V4i) will host a forum tomorrow at Benalla to decide the next orange independent candidate for Indi.
There are four candidates, whose identity remains secret, in the running for the position.
The forum will involve up to 200 ‘orange’ supporters working through a deliberative process to choose the organisation’s successor to sitting member for Indi, independent Cathy McGowan (MHR, Indi).

Ms McGowan (right) said she will attend tomorrow’s forum, but merely as an observer.
“I will make further comment early next week,” she said.
Full details of the outcome of the forum will be in Monday’s
