The forum for the Yan Yean and Kalkallo electorates will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, November 9, at the Wallan Secondary College auditorium, 100 Duke Street Wallan, from 6.30pm.

Voters have been able to submit questions to the candidates to be answered at the forum online.

Questions can be asked via https://app.sli.do/event/hCgrm8dqLYKRji3T8zwEeQ/live/polls.

To register for the forums, visit bit.ly/3CKWPoa (Seymour) or bit.ly/3MFrgAW (Wallan).

People attending the forums will also be given the opportunity to submit questions from the floor.

Subjects of questions submitted to date are the proposed quarry at Wallan, the long-awaited Watson Street, Wallan, diamond interchange and the Wallan Kilmore bypass.

Health services and concerns over state-wide lockdowns also rated highly on the list of questions.

Many of the questions submitted have made it clear that the community wants a clear and concise answer from candidates.

“No dancing around and making excuses,” one submitter has requested.

At press time all Euroa candidates except the Greens’ James Bennett indicated they would attend the forum. All candidates in the Kalkallo electorate have said they will attend. Yan Yean is also shaping up to be well represented.
