Division 6 ELECTION 2016 – Part 3 – Interviews

Division 6 ELECTION 2016 – Part 3 – Interviews

Sippy Downs and District as you are aware we invited questions from each and every local resident and intern invited all three candidates from Division 6 to participate so as to enable you to hear your candidates responses to local issues and concerns presented to you via a video interview format.

Sadly only two (2) of the three (3) candidates were willing to participate however with great pleasure we present their responses for your consideration.

Division 6 ELECTION 2016 – Part 2 – Interviews to be held this week

DIV6 InterviewsThis week we will be interviewing your candidates for the Sunshine Coast – Division 6 Electorate and asking them the questions you would like answers to, in the followup to our “Part 1 – Invitation to Residents” post just on 2 weeks ago.

Following correlation of all the questions submitted we have decided to hold the interviews for each of the candidate’s street side at the Chancellor State Primary School in Sippy Downs.
The issues surrounding this area are a key issue locally which is evident by multiple questions from residents on this topic.

We will be asking the same questions of each of your candidates with a total of 5 questions including our very generous hint above. The other 4 questions will be presented to the candidates at the interview for the very first time.

Two of our locals who submitted questions expressed an interest in being present to ask their questions of your Councillors Elect themselves which is an option we offered all locals who completed the question form. We will be contacting them today with the two confirmed interviews to invite them to participate.

Your Councillors Elect, Elaine Hughes and Christian Dickson have confirmed their availability and we look forward to hearing from Mike Doroshenko very soon confirming his availability so that we may present responses to your questions by all of the candidates standing for election.

We will not be releasing any footage until we have interviewed all candidates or before the cut off for interviews on March 12th, whichever comes first.

Councillors elect we look forward to speaking with you all soon and asking the questions your constituents would like to hear your responses to.
