Voices of Boothby endorses Jo Dyer – Independent for Boothby
Many of us have a vision for a better world but feel powerless to make this happen. Voices of Boothby is about changing that. We are a pro-democracy community group within the electorate of Boothby.
What do we do?
Our aim is to reclaim and elevate Australian Democracy by supporting, encouraging, and enabling, capable candidates who embrace principles and visions for us all and who will act in good faith on behalf of their community.
During 2020 and 2021 Voices of Boothby has listened to the people of our electorate, through Kitchen Table Conversations.
We heard loud and clear that the people of Boothby want greater action on climate change, a more gender and socially equitable society and greater transparency and integrity in our political representatives.
We have compiled what we heard into a consultation report “Boothby Speaks – Voices of Boothby Consultation Report 2020-2021”.
The Kitchen Table Conversation model of community consultation was borrowed from ‘Voices of Warringah’ and ‘Voices 4 Indi’ and was developed by the ‘Victorian Women’s Trust’. We acknowledge and thank them for their pioneering work.
We’ve endorsed state and federal candidates
Based on what our community has called for, Voices of Boothby is pleased to endorse two community independent candidates who share our values.
Community independent candidate for Boothby – We are excited to endorse Jo Dyer, Independent for Boothby.
Community independent for Waite – We are also excited to endorse Dr. Heather Holmes-Ross, independent candidate for Waite in the State election.
Both of these inspiring women share our values and have platforms that have been shaped by what we’ve heard in our Kitchen Table Conversations.
Voices of Boothby acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which we conduct our activities, the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains, and we pay our respects to elders past and present.
