The Sippy Downs & District Community Association will host a 'Meet the Candidates' forum for the Federal seat of Fairfax on Tuesday 20 November 2007. Following the electoral redistribution after the last Federal election, Sippy Downs has moved from the Fisher electorate to Fairfax.
The forum will be held at the multi-purpose hall at Chancellor State College Primary Campus, Scholars Drive, Sippy Downs, commencing at 7:15 pm.
Candidates will have the opportunity to speak briefly about themselves and their priorities for the Sippy Downs area. Sitting member Alex Somlyay MP (Liberal), Debbie Blumel (Labor) and David Norris (Greens) have already accepted an invitation to attend. A full list of participating candidates will be published following the close of nominations.
Community organisations and individuals have the opportunity to submit questions on notice, which candidates will be asked to address in their statements. Due to time constraints there will be a limit on the number of questions on notice, but there will also be the opportunity for questions from the floor.
Questions should be submitted to the SDDCA by 12 noon on Monday 12 November, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or posted to PO Box 7002, Sippy Downs, 4556. Names and contact numbers must be included.
