Canberra Business Club supports Community Alliance Party and Mark Parton (Independent)

By emd 29 August 2008 63

ABC News story here and Canberra Times story here.

The Canberra Business Club, a former Liberal Party fundraising group run by Jim Murphy, will support ACT election candidates Norvan Vogt and Val Jeffery from the Community Alliance Party, and Mark Parton (running as an independent). CBC says they’ll be doing TV advertising campaigns for these candidates. Norvan Vogt is running for CAP in Molonglo, Val Jeffery is running in Brindabella, and Mark Parton in Ginninderra.

Looks like this will be an interesting election campaign.

[ED – Jakez also posted on this story, he added the following comment]

    I never listened to him but I know there are quite a number of RiotACT members who are fans. Can anyone give any clues as to his general ideological/philosophical outlook?

    Also note that Jim Murhpy and the CBC are backing his campaign, so I’d just like to take this moment to send a big ‘I told you so’ to the Kate Carnell rumour believers.

Oops about the misrepresentation of Norvan’s affiliation (every so often I think “should I actually do research or know what I’m talking about when I’m discussing this stuff on Riot Act”, then I remember – hell, it’s a comment thread, people’ll just call me a moron if I’m wrong)

I think we need to be planning a post-election RA bash somewhere.

Simbo: I also think (hope) there will be a minority government – certainly majority government hasn’t served the ACT well.

I think it will probably be ALP – more so now with Bill’s departure. On Andrew, I’d like to think that people would look beyond the poison chalices he has been lobbed by others in his party. My experience is that he’s been one who has been prepared to both listen and act on community input, wherever he had the room to do so.

If I were on the cross-benches, and the ALP had the largest overall representation, I’d have no problem putting his name up for Chief.

Mulcahy and Pangallo are running on different tickets yet again,

As far as I know, no links to Murphy.
