The Newcastle Institute, in partnership with the Newcastle Herald, will be conducting a public forum for the candidates for Newcastle Lord Mayoral by-election on November 12th at South’s Leagues Club.
The broad theme will be “My vision for the future of Newcastle”.
As you may know, we recently held two similar events for the Charlestown and Newcastle State By-elections. It’s anticipated that the format will be much the same (i.e. each candidate will get time to make a short ‘policy speech’, and will be interviewed individually, with questions individualised by an independent panel who will be guided by (but not limited to) the questions submitted through the Herald and Newcastle Institute websites (www.newinstitute.org.au). The ultimate decision on questions to be put to the candidates remains up to the panel alone. They have been instructed and agreed to be equally fair to all candidates.
We look forward to seeing you there.
