Kylea shares her week on the campaign trail

Week 29: What it truly means to be a community Independent

It was a great pleasure to see so many familiar faces, and so many new ones, at this week's Meet the Candidate events. Looking around the packed room in Artarmon on Wednesday, I saw men and women, young and old, from right across our diverse community - all seeking real and honest representation.

North Sydney deserves to have our voice heard, and our vote matter. Yet right now our voice, represented by our member in Canberra, is lost in a two-party system that thinks that by voting for them, we have completely delegated our democratic right to be part of the decisions that shape our future.

For too long, we've been fed an entirely false dichotomy: that our politicians must serve either the Labor Party or the LNP, or somehow be "secret supporters" of one of those two. But here's the truth: Politicians exist to serve YOU, their constituents, not the other way around. At the end of the day, as an Independent candidate, I will never have to choose between following a party line or voting in the way my community wants. That's why we need to turn North Sydney independent, and take our seat back for our community.

North Sydney, this is our time. Let's change the climate in Canberra.'
