Local Leaders Team – (Tegan Swan for Mayor)

Here is Tegan’s explanation of her definitly different HTV card on local Facebook;

OT your usual how to vote 🤔So today I did a thing… I asked my whole team to put me last.

WHY? 😱🙋🏽‍♀️ Because I asked them to stand with me to start with.

✨ And because they are standing with me, I’m standing behind them. I’ve got their back and I want them to shine.

🤝I couldn’t think of a more tangible way to show I’m all in with them.

🙏 I am so ridiculously grateful to have 4 of the most incredible leaders and people, with the hugest hearts, putting themselves forward to guide our community.

📣Pat, Meena, Troy and Kareena aren’t just lending their voice to me in this election. They have their own voices and they deserve to be heard.

🌱We are a team, but I know we won’t always agree. I don’t want us to! Being a team isn’t being the same. Being a team is shining in your own right and understanding each individual person and their perspective adds value, especially in situations where we want different things.

Leading those difficult situations with respect and compassion is true leadership.

⬇️We are in this together and we are demonstrating our commitment to diverse and authentic representation of our community by encouraging you to vote below the line.

Vote for us in whatever order best reflects your version of leadership.
