Indi: South by South East Trip
Indi Campaign trip Saturday 15 September 2013
South by South East Action Plan: 13 September (developed by Denis Ginnivan 0412503498)
This trip is, as promised by Cathy and the team, to sincerely thank all supporters of the campaign in the more distant parts of the electorate, particularly in the Murrundindi, Mansfield and Benalla areas. It is to fulfil the campaign team commitment for improved and continuing connectivity throughout the electorate. And to celebrate the achievements thus far: Voice for Indi, Indi now a contestable seat, community engagement right across the electorate, Indi beginning to develop an identity as a regional community, Cathy’s election campaign, and the inter-generational involvement by people of all ages…. We might just even have a small (only therapeutic) glass of sherry to celebrate the election outcome, in the unlikely event that this is clear!!
