A FEATURE OF the ‘Voices for’ community politics phenomenon, since Voices for Indi pioneered it in 2013, is its particularity.
Concepts and values are the common thread, but because each group emerges from local community – and depends on that community for purpose and growth – the groups’ processes, positioning and purpose consequently differ between electorates.
No Fibs began reporting on Mackellar when Alice Thompson stood as the Independents Day candidate in 2019.
We interviewed Sophie Scamps when Mackellar Rising was searching for a candidate and Sophie’s wing-woman Louise Hislop mid-campaign. We published pieces by Voices of Mackellar co-founder turned Sophie volunteer coordinator Leonie Scarlett and several campaign volunteers.
In this No Fibs podcast episode Margo Kingston talks with Voices of Mackellar President, Sheilah Hogan and co-founder Maree Nutt now Treasurer and Secretary.
What did Voices of Mackellar do before and during the campaign, and what is its mission now that Sophie Scamps is Mackellar’s independent MP?
What an evening at the 2022 Election Mackellar Candidate Forum.— Voices of Mackellar (@MackellarVoices) May 4, 2022
Thanks to the candidates who took the time to join in on the conversation.
