I welcome the recent announcement of Tamworth regional councillor Mark Rodda standing as an Independent candidate at the March 23rd election.
I also welcome Kevin Anderson being preselected to be the NSW Nationals candidate as he runs for a potential third term in office. Personally, I see this as being a Nationals v Independent race. I see fit as a voter that civil policy debate should be the only method of getting constructive outcomes for this great rural electorate.
Policy such as decentralisation of services and enterprise to Tamworth and our surrounding areas, private sector growth and better TAFE funding to help our long term unemployed get sustainable work are policy debates that I wish to see discussed in the upcoming days and weeks.
Personally I’m reminded that where you stand on an issue is where you sit.
