NEXT STEPS FOR Voice for Indi

Alana Johnson, is the Voices for Indi President. The electorate of Indi is being heralded across the nation as a demonstration of active 21st century democracy based on civic engagement, respect and a new means of political action.

The successful election of Indi independent candidate Cathy McGowan with a 9% swing against the national trend demonstrated that politics in Australia can still be about the people rather than parties.

Voices for Indi is committed to progressing participatory democracy in Indi and beyond. After hosting IndiShares in June, an Indi summit is planned for September 2014.
