Elections ACT reports that 243,471 electors are on the roll for the upcoming election, an increase of 17,373 or 7.7% from the last time round in 2004.
Now here’s a different breakdown of their numbers:
- Ginninderra, 5 seats, 68,358 electors, 13672 voters per member.
Brindabella, 5 seats, 71,394 electors, 14279 voters per member.
Molonglo, 7 seats, 103,719 electors, 14817 voters per member.
The dynamic and seemingly inseperable duo of Katy and Jon have put out a double:
- 1. They’re promising $220,000 for a new “Community Health and Wellbeing Centre” in West Belconnen.
2. They’ve found a whopping $132.4 million to spend on “community health services” generally if re-elected.
The ABC has an inkling of a Green education policy:
- Greens Candidate for Ginninderra Meredith Hunter says her party would not enter into any bidding war over class sizes.
“Rather than across the board class reduction to 21 in high schools, we would be far far better off targeting resources to those who most need them,” she said.
The Greens are also promising to review the Stanhope Government’s school closure if it gets candidates elected to the Legislative Assembly.
Roger Nicoll says the Labor GP plan is “better late than never”.
Jane Tullis agrees with the Greens that class sizes are not a universal panacea.
Roger Nicoll thinks that today’s West Belconnen health announcement is fabbo.
