Elections ACT are now running a more up to date list of political donations and this afternoon a swag of them have turned up (dated 6 August).
We don’t know what Dataflex’s connections are but the rest!
So Hawker Britton are star Labor Party lobbyists. Somewhat in disgrace we gather after founder Bruce Hawker ran the campaign for Kevin Rudd’s mutiny earlier this year. Keep the money flowing and all will be forgiven we imagine.
IGA Distribution certainly have an interest in supermarket policy.
Professor Stephen Parker? Why that would be the Vice Chancellor of the University of Canberra. Just this morning catching $50 million in funding. Of course unrelated to chipping in $1050 to the party making that decisions.
Finally the Molonglo Group. The developers who brought you New Acton, are currently building Nishi, and are no doubt looking forward to approval for their next project (not that we’re suggesting this donation will colour that decision making).
We certainly look forward to the next round of updates!
