We are so incredibly excited to announce that Cathy McGowan AO, former independent Member for Indi and one of the founding members of the “Voices” movement, is coming to Goldstein.

Cathy and a number of Indi constituents will join us at the Brighton Bowls Club on Friday 30th July for a sausage sizzle, a drink and a chat about the independent experience.

What are the benefits of an independent candidate? What are the limitations? What makes for a good independent candidate? What can we learn from their candidate identification and campaign experience?

These are some of the questions Cathy and members of Indi will answer - and of course, you’ll have a chance to ask your own. There’ll also be time to mingle and meet others from our community.

This will be a really special night out - a night to remember. But places are limited, so don’t miss out. Purchase your ticket now.

Tickets are $15 each ($10 for concession). Food and drink will be available on the night for purchase. Money raised on the night will go towards covering the costs of the venue and help us campaign to find our very own Cath McGowan.

We can’t wait to see you there!

Before you go - we need your help: -

Our campaign to find our Independent in Goldstein launched on the weekend. Over twenty people in indigo t-shirts walked up and down Hampton St talking to curious shoppers. We had a really positive response, but to create the buzz we need to find our Cath McGowan or Zali Steggall, we need to be out in the electorate as much as possible. 

If you believe finding a high quality, community-minded independent candidate for Goldstein is the way to break the impasse in Australian politics and restore our democracy to the people, then help find that candidate by:

1) buying an #independent4goldstein t-shirt; and

2) joining us for a democracy walk.

Our next democracy walk will be this Saturday at 10am in Bentleigh. Find out more and RSVP here

If you can’t make it this Saturday, but would like to participate in further democracy walks, please come along to our online volunteer briefing on Wednesday 17th July at 7:30pm to find out more.

The search is on, now is the time for us all to be active citizens in our democracy. Looking forward to seeing you at a democracy walk soon,

Sue Barrett and Kylie McIntosh
