Candidates ready for your questions at business breakfast
IF YOU want to meet the Federal candidates for the Richmond electorate, you should head along to the Combined Chambers of Commerce of the Tweed Shire's business breakfast on Wednesday, September 4.
Held so the public can personally question the candidates, the breakfast will allow the public to ask five of the six candidates the questions that really matter to them.
Richmond MP Justine Elliot along with Nationals candidate Matthew Fraser, the Palmer United Party's Dr Phil Allen, the Greens' Dawn Walker and independent Kevin Skinner will be fronting up to take constituents' questions.
The moderator will be local real estate agent and Kingscliff and District Chamber of Commerce member Mark Humphries.
Secretary of the Kingscliff Chamber Dennis Eyre said he anticipated a crowd of 120 politically charged Tweed residents to attend the breakfast, armed with burning questions that relate to the Richmond electorate.
Mr Eyre said he personally hoped questions related to cutting red-tape for small businesses in the area would emerge at the breakfast.
Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club will host the breakfast at 7am, at a cost of $25 per person.
To assist with catering, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Late starter to the election, Christian Democratic Party candidate John Ordish, from South Lismore, has not indicated that he will attend the business breakfast at this stage.
