Quiz the candidates for Hammond

FOUR candidates for the electorate of Hammond will front a crowd at the Murray Bridge Community Club on Tuesday, March 11, as they seek the public’s votes in Saturday’s State election.

Nationals candidate Rachel Titley, Family First’s Daniel Gutteridge and the Greens’ Damien Pyne will join current Liberal MP Adrian Pederick on stage for a discussion about the issues that matter.

Labor candidate Lou Bailey will be unable to attend due to other commitments, while Mr Pyne indicated he could be late.

Questions on subjects from wind farms to politicians’ pensions have already begun rolling in from around the Murraylands, and attendees will be able to ask more on the night.

At the end of the evening, each candidate will give a two-minute summary of the reasons they deserve the public’s vote.

Entry will be free to all and the bar will be open.

The successful candidate for Hammond at Saturday’s election will represent an area of more than 6000 square kilometres, including Murray Bridge and Tailem Bend, in State Parliament’s House of Assembly.

However, he or she will not represent voters in the Karoonda and Southern Mallee districts, who the South Australian Electoral Commission has transferred to Chaffey since the last election.

- Details: The forum will begin at 7pm on Tuesday, March 11, in the upstairs function room at the club at Sturt Reserve, Murray Bridge and will conclude around 8-8.30pm.
