The Canberra Times has a story about the efforts of former GetUp! frontman Simon Sheik to transplant to Canberra and make a doomed tilt at Gary Humphries’ Senate seat for the Greens.
Opposing him is Kate Hamilton who has only recently moved back to Canberra after two decades in Sydney but can say she grew up here.
Interestingly in the article Simon makes much of his time at the Tuggeranong Community Festival on Saturday. He was certainly at Corinbank (more on that soon) for a lot of Saturday.
The above photo was the Greens contribution to the Green Culture Village at Corinbank which was staffed on Saturday (including Caroline Le Couteur) but was eerily empty on the Saturday.
We’ll know the result of the Green pre-selection on Friday.
