Last night the Liberals’ Matthew Watts kicked off our candidate challenge for the 2012 election.
As a contributor in the donor phase Matt was able to choose his venue and Belconnen’s The Basement gave us a heavy metal soundtrack as Matt beavered away for 2 3/4 hours of the three available to him before declaring his vision complete.
Somewhat to everyone’s surprise ACT Light Rail’s Damian Haas turned up as Matt’s second and the Secretary of the ACT Labor Party was in attendance.
Matt’s priorities appear to be power boats on Lake Ginninderra, buses to Hall, and reducing the liquor licensing costs to small venues, particularly the Wood Duck Hotel at Hall.
But don’t take my word for it, he explains all in the video.
Candidates are still nailing down their performance times and we’ll advise when we’re closer to doing the next one as the public are encouraged to come along and share their thoughts with the candidates.
(Candidates are advised that there will be no candidate challenges after 28 September so they better get in quick, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
