BLOG - No man is an island
If you were to look at a CV of my grandma’s life, you probably wouldn’t be over awed. A high school graduate who held down jobs as first a waitress then a nurse’s assistant from her twenties until she suffered a work-related injury at 57, and went onto a disability benefit. Wife of a beer delivery man, mother of three, grandmother of six, and great grandmother of two.
BLOG - On our behalf
We realise the reality of politics is that a lot of negotiating and decision-making has to occur behind closed doors, so the character of the people we put behind those doors matters. Voters need to be able to trust that whether negotiating with private business for a convention centre, or granting surveillance orders in the name of national security, our leaders will hold their sense of right and wrong, and act well on our behalf.
