Greatorex forum: where was the fourth candidate? And where were the voters?

It was a "job interview" and he didn't turn up. First question to the other three contenders for the Legislative Assembly seat of Greatorex was, "Where's the CLP candidate? Has there been any apology from him?"

This was the 'meet the candidate' forum for Greatorex, organised well in advance by independent candidate Phil Walcott to which all contenders were invited.

"If someone chooses to not turn up for the interview, well ...," said Mr Walcott, explaining that incumbent Matt Conlan (Country Liberals) had indicated that he would not attend via a letter to the editor in the Centralian Advocate last week.

Joining Mr Walcott to outline their platform and answer questions were the ALP candidate Rowan Foley and the Greens' recently announced contender, Evelyne Roullet.

It seems though that the campaign is hardly setting the electorate on fire. About a dozen constituents turned up. Local media from three outlets were also in attendance.

Alcohol policies were an inevitable focus.
