He promised to visit every locality in the electorate and independent candidate, Mathew Dickerson, isn’t shying away from the challenge having clocked up 20,000 kilometres at day 182 of his campaign.
Mr Dickerson made that promise when he announced his intention to become the voice of the Dubbo electorate at the NSW state election 23 March 2019.
To date Mr Dickerson has visited and met with people in 48 per cent of those 131 localities across the 17,352.89 square km electorate. From Dandaloo in the west to Kains Flat in the East; Eurimbla in the South to Bundemar in the North; he is gradually ticking off the list in a face-to-face fashion to learn how people of the electorate want to be represented.
So far during his campaign, Mathew has held close to 1,000 meetings, sometimes with just one person and at other times he has delivered a presentation to a group of almost 100 people.
“Since my announcement in May this year, I have spent my time talking with people across the electorate either individually or in small groups to find out what matters to them.
“This is an old-fashioned authentic method of finding out what really matters to the people in this electorate.
“I will continue to travel the electorate right up until the election and then, if I am elected, I promise that I will continue to travel the electorate to continue to communicate with people across the entire electorate. This is no less than the people of this electorate deserve,” Mathew enthused. (21 November 2018)
