Canberra’s internationally renowned, award-winning blogger Samuel Gordon-Stewart is debating standing in the upcoming federal election, but he wants you to help him decide.
He says, “Admittedly, the chances of me actually unseating the current Labor member for Fraser aren’t great, but it is fairly obvious that I have a lot of views on a lot of subjects, and I think I could make a useful and interesting contribution to parliament.”
Well, dear reader, you may remember the great blog stack of 2006 and how that helped SGS to win not one but THREE (and one runner up) awards at the Australian Blog Awards.
So, why not head over to Sam’s blog and encourage him to stand. It could certainly liven up the campaign a touch.
And when it comes around to the actual election, remember that with preferential voting, you can Vote 1 SGS and still vote for whoever it is you might want in the big house on the hill.
And for those interested, here’s an interview with Sam by 2CC announcer Mike Welsh on the topic (apologies for the sound quality and the first few seconds may be silent).
