The ‘or­ange’ sup­port­ers to choose a suc­ces­sor to McGowan

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

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).

Although Ms McGowan has yet to an­nounce she will be step­ping down at the next fed­eral elec­tion, tipped to be held in May, the ‘or­ange army’ is pre­par­ing their next cho­sen can­di­date just in case.

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
