[Updated with videos] This evening [Nov 8], the Progressive Labour Party are hosting the “Standing Strong for Warwick – Road to the Election” event at the Warwick Workman’s Club.
The speakers are scheduled to include Warwick candidates Lawrence Scott, Dale Butler, Marc Bean, Lt/Col David Burch and Jonathan Smith, along with Premier Paula Cox. The audience is a sea of green t-shirts, and they are reacting very enthusiastically to the speakers.
