Yesterday I had breakfast (at lunchtime) at The Weekend Local in Euroa with my sister and niece as a sort of post-election celebration. Then we set off to collect all the corflute signs I'd put up around the electorate.
The photo shows the fence at the main intersection in Euroa - it's been like a 2D election party! First the Libs put their signs up, then the Nats, then I put one up, then the Greens and Labor, followed by the Country Party.
I'd covered many of the booths east of the Northern Hwy, so there was a lot of ground to cover. We ended up stopping at Shamrock Hotel, Numurkah for dinner.
Whilst 3 years is a long time, I need to make a living and a lot could happen in the interim; for the foreseeable future I plan to continue meeting and working with the community to strengthen our region in any way I can with the possibility of running again in 2019.
If I hadn't lost my voice on Saturday night I'd have attended the National NAIDOC Week celebrations at Rumbalara Aboriginal Co-operative this morning, I'm hoping to be well enough to attend the event at Bangerang Cultural Centre on Wednesday (details here: http://bit.ly/29noU9F).
I won't be posting here as often - voters deserve a break - but I will continue to learn and grow, and will continue to work with the community to get things done. Thanks again to everyone who has given me support, assistance and votes throughout this 2016 election campaign.
And yes, I finally found time for a shave and a haircut!
