Page voters are invited to meet your local candidates at a special event sponsored by Echonetdaily tonight (Thursday 29 August).

The Page pre-election forum has been organised by the Northern Rivers Social Development Council, which also present Tuesday night’s successful Richmond pre-election forum .

The event will be held at the Lismore Workers Club, Keen Street, Lismore,  from 6pm. MC will be NRSDC CEO Tony Davies.

Candidates from both the major parties plus the Greens, Christian Democrats, One Nation and Palmer United parties have confirmed their attendance.

Mr Davies said some key social issues have not yet had a chance to emerge on the political parties’ election platforms and action needed to be taken to ensure people in regional communities have an opportunity to reach their fullest potential.

‘Issues such as homelessness, affordable housing, education, mental and dental health, parenting and Newstart payments and community services need to tackled by whichever party takes control of government after the election,’ he told Echonetdaily.
