A friend of mine was recently approached by a Pangallo Independent Party ‘organiser’, Joseph Carbone, with an offer to be a candidate for the Pangallo Independents. Carbone, who apparently made a big deal of the fact that he worked with Patersons Securities, had little understanding of politics or the voting system in the ACT.
My friend said he wasn’t sure if he was being ‘interviewed’ for the party ticket or being given stock exchange advice from Carbone.
Anyway, my friend decided to take the next step and meet with Frank Pangallo. If my friend had any doubts prior to running with the Pangallo team he had no doubt he wouldn’t after meeting Frank. My friend said Pangallo was one of the most “dreary” people that he had ever met.
Both Pangallo and Carbone told my friend they had big financial backing for the campaign and they were convinced they would win a number of seats.

When my friend said he would not contest the election they ‘desperately’ pushed him for other people who may wish to run LOL.
So, anyone out there who wants a career in politics please contact Frank ASAP. You’ll be a shoo-in 🙂
