The state election we NSW-ites have long been longing(!) for is now only weeks away (hurrah!)!
The first election posters appeared a couple of weeks ago (seemingly overnight) on every available vertical space in the ‘burb. Note the very subtle nod to political affiliation in the bottom-left corner – I don’t blame her, I wouldn’t want to be associated with those clowns either.
It would seem that the whole “keep x” might be a bit of an inner-west (electorally super-marginal to the Greens) marketing strategy, because there’s also a keep Carmel twitter account (though no “keep Verity” one as yet)
Then a few weeks later, again quite literally overnight, the stickers appeared. Persons unknown had been very, very busy with a ladder.
It is difficult to find an election poster in Glebe that is not thus appended.
Actually, much to my extreme surprise, Verity has been a very, very good local member. She’s also been a pretty decent education minister.
I’ll still be voting Green.
