Northern Rivers Candidate Forum

Northern Rivers Union Network are hosting a public forum on Thursday 12th March where the candidates in the March 2015 State Election for the seats of Lismore, Ballina and Tweed are invited to answer questions relating to TAFE Cuts, the Jobs, Rights and Services Campaign and local issues. 

Local union members will be able to ask questions about;

  • TAFE cuts.
  • Privatisation of poles and wires.
  • Funding cuts to local community services.
  • Privatisation of health and disability services.
  • CSG mining.

The candidates will have to answer questions relating to these issues before being asked to commit to signing the Candidates Pledge.

It is set to be an informative and fun evening with a genuine opportunity for the public to interact with the candidates on the issues the community feels most strongly about.
