About 160 people came along on Tuesday 20 September to question candidates in the seat of Kurrajong for the 15 October ACT election. Armed with a diverse collection of questions, many voters took the opportunity to grill their incumbent and potential representatives.
Ably moderated by ABC 666 Mornings presenter Genevieve Jacobs, the panel of local members Andrew Barr, Shane Rattenbury, and Steve Doszpot were put under pressure to explain past performance and their promises for the next term of government. Other candidates also had an opportunity to respond to issues raised from the floor.
About 20 candidates chatted with the audience before and after the Q&A panel, enjoying sumptuous soup and other refreshments prepared by the Lyneham Primary School P&C.
Quiz Your Candidates was a joint initiative of Lyneham Community Association and North Canberra Community Council. LCA is grateful to NCCC for funding and advertising the event, and for organisational assistance.
