The Port Stephens Greens have sent a comprehensive 24 Question survey to all lead candidates in the 2017 Council election. Twelve of the candidates completed the questionnaires. Some of the responses are quite interesting and can be viewed HERE.
Please Note: The law on distributing election material is very important.
This is especially relevant due to some very contentious and derogatory material that is being distributed across the LGA in the lead up to the election which carries no identification whatsoever.
TRRA is of the view that anything being distributed without attribution is generally sent out that way because the perpetrators arguments would not stand up to proper legal scrutiny, and are probably libellous, untrue or both. This material should preferably be ignored, but if you look at who would stand to gain from such imputations, it is not too hard to figure out where it is coming from. The Police are have been notified and are investigating.

“Please note that anyone printing and distributing ‘election material’ must comply with electoral law, including by including an ‘authorised by … and printed by …’ imprint. Also, any such material distributed on election day (9 September) had to be registered with the Electoral Commission by 1 September. We therefore advise viewers not to print and distribute any of the information on this page. Port Stephens Greens are not endorsing or supporting any candidate or group – we provide the candidates’ responses to our questionnaire for online viewing as a public service to assist voters in making their choice.”
Tip! Take care with your preferences again in this election, make sure you know where your vote is going.
