May 2014 Archives

In this episode, we talk the state budget and its effects on Bendigo. We also discuss the effects of the Annie North Women's Refuge issue on the local Liberal Party's campaign, Melbourne's transport system, and unemployment. We close with a summary of a few of the issues to keep an eye on over the coming months.

Another year, another election. This November, Victorian voters will decide who will lead the state for another four years. Tom O'Callaghan and I met up to discuss the upcoming election and what it means to the Bendigo area.

In this episode, we talk about how the results of last year's federal election might impact this year. We also discuss the local candidates from the major parties and provide commentary on Bendigo's growth as a regional centre. We close with a few holistic observations of politics and democracy in general.

Tom is very apologetic for forgetting the name of the Liberal candidate for Bendigo West, Jack Lyons. Give him a hard time about it on his Twitter, @tombendigo. You can also check out his blog,

Stay tuned for the next episode, in which we will talk about the state budget.
