A third Player has emerged in the fight for Badcoe. A week ago now, Cr John Woodward announced his intention to stand.
His candidature should add some spice to the campaign. He will be running as an independent against the endorsed candidates for the two major parties. As you will know from two of my previous posts in the Fight for Badcoe they are as follows. Jayne Stinson for Labor and City of Unley’s own Mayor Lachlan Clyne for the Liberals.
John adds another dimension to a seat I have previously identified as a possible litmus test for the formation of the next Government.
Like the two other candidates he will come as no stranger to a portion of the Badcoe electorate. That said I am unaware of ever having met him. Having had a number of conversations with both Lachlan and Jayne I will make a point of catching up John.
What I have ascertained about John comes from his Facebook Page and Website. He is seeking a more collaborative approach to solving problems, NOT the adversarial, bickering, nasty personal attacks that we see from our two major parties.
For more information about John check out John’s election website.
There is yet no announcement from the Greens or from NXT regarding endorsing any candidate. With John’s announcement the other two candidates are out and about.
Lachlan has been pounding the streets in those sections of the Seat of Badcoe where is is not as well know. Jayne, on the other hand is holding two community meetings in little ol’ Clarence Park tomorrow morning.
They will be as follows:
9 am thru’ 9.45 at Dora Guild Playground
10 am thru’ 10.45 at Page Park.
