Rob Oakeshott, Independent Candidate for Cowper

Rob Oakeshott to answer questions from voters on Facebook Live

On Monday the 20th of June, between 8 & 9pm, Rob Oakeshott, the Independent Candidate for the seat of Cowper will be answering questions from voters on Facebook Live.  

It is important that all candidates make their policy positions clear so that voters know exactly who is best to represent them in parliament, Rob Oakeshott said.

“I’d like people to realise they are always welcome to ask for my view on the issues that affect them directly, whether I am running for a seat in Parliament or in office.”

“On Monday, I hope to cover as many questions as possible on policies that affect the Mid North Coast and the rest of Australia.” 

Rob Oakeshott noted that limited internet infrastructure in some areas of the Cowper electorate means that this online conversation will not be accessible to all. 

“It’s a real shame. Areas such as Bellingen and Scotts Head should have just as much access to an online democratic conversation as anyone else. It proves that the current broadband policy is not good enough.” 

“We will be publishing an outline of the questions answered on so that those who cannot stream can still participate in the conversation and ask their questions on Twitter and Facebook.” 

Anyone can submit questions by tweeting them with the tag #oakey4Cowper, or by posting their questions on the event page.
