GCC ACT Election Forum 9 September

The next GCC public meeting will be an ACT Election Forum to be held on Wednesday 9 September starting at 6:30pm. The Forum will be for candidates in the ACT seat of Yerrabi and will be conducted online using Zoom and live streamed on the GCC’s Facebook page. The aim of the Forum is to provide residents of Gungahlin a chance to identify and hear from candidates for the ACT seat of Yerrabi.

To join the the Forum, please REGISTER beforehand to receive the meeting details via email.

All parties registered for the ACT Election have been invited to attend, and all candidates have been asked to provide written answers to simple questions about Gungahlin ahead of the Forum. Candidate responses can be found at ACT Election 2020 Yerrabi Candidates Summary. The aim of this simple Q&A is to provide a succinct, Gungahlin-centric, “upfront” view of all candidates to assist residents in forming questions.

Candidates have also been sent a copy of the GCC’s ACT Election 2020 Expectations  which outlines the GCC’s understanding of what’s important to Gungahlin residents.

Format

  1. Welcome and Introductions, Forum Host, Peter Elford, GCC
  2. Candidate Introductions, Yerrabi Candidates (3-4 minutes each)
  3. Open Question and Answers

If you have pre-prepared questions, please email them to the GCC prior to the event. Questions should be directed to specific candidates, to a specific party, or able to be answered with a show of hands. If a question is directed to a party that is represented by multiple candidates, only one candidate will be asked by the host to respond.

The aim of this Forum structure is to maximise the Q&A time – we are aiming for an hour of candidates speaking, and an hour of Q&A – ending at 8:30pm.
