INDI MP Sophie Mirabella was on the hustings yesterday, making the most of the final days of the campaign.
The sitting member started the day at Wod- onga saleyards, meeting farmers and agents.
Later, she headed to the early voting centre to hand out how-to-vote cards and catch up with voters.
She said she would spend the next two days “out and about in the electorate, talking and campaigning”.
“I’m excited,” she said.
“There’s all indication that the country will be delivered from the dysfunction and chaos of the past six years and, from talking to people at the saleyards, that’s a great relief to them.
“They want a change of government.”
She said people wanted the Coalition to restore confidence, scrap damaging taxes and reassure them “the grown-ups are in charge in Canberra”.
Meanwhile, her main opponent, independent Cathy McGowan popped into Jappo Donks in Wod- onga early to get her “Indi-van” campaign car serviced.
She has travelled more than 11,000 kilometres in it during the campaign and will be out and about in it in Wodonga today.
She said she was still pinching herself about the momentum her campaign had developed.
“I never dreamed two months ago that we could be in this position just days from the election — it’s a compliment to the communities of Indi that have organised, tolerated and come together for a magical Indi spring,” she said.
“We’ve seen a lot of negativity recently but it is only a local who is independent of Sydney and Melbourne politics who can really put Indi first and deliver the services we have missed out on for so long.”
