The date for Cathy's maiden speech has been confirmed for the 2nd of December between 4-6 pm in Canberra!
Her maiden speech finally caps what has been an incredible journey for all of us, from the campaign that captured not only the attention of the people of Indi, but also the nation. On the 2nd of December, Cathy, the second ever female independent to sit in the Parliament of Australia, has the chance to outline her vision as our local representative.
Cathy pledged during the campaign to bring Indi with her to Canberra, and that starts now. Volunteers, supporters and constituents are all invited to join Cathy in the gallery as she sets out her vision for Indi and the goals for her term of office. There will be buses organised to transport people up, with prices to be confirmed once we have numbers. The aim is to leave Indi around 10am on the 2nd and head back to the electorate after the speech (which would get us back in at approximately 11pm).
To find out where the buses are leaving and to RSVP by 25/11/13, please contact your local organiser:
