Administration Manager’s Report
CDP Head Office and Campaign Team supported the By-Election Candidates for NSW Electorates of CANTERBURY, ORANGE and WOLLONGONG. This included travel to and from and several days participation in the Orange Field Days.
Behind the scenes
Before any election CDP protocol ensures
• that each Candidate is a CDP Member
• Candidates complete the CDP and Electoral office forms
• personal references are checked
• Candidate Committee receives a Recommendation
• Party Authorisation is gained
• Official advice is provided and Candidates are released to their individual campaigns
There are always a variety of expectations from Candidates, CDP Volunteers and our Community. As representatives of CDP we need to balance these expectations.
The Christian Democratic Party was blessed with each of the Candidates for the recent NSW By-Elections. The office team worked well together with the Campaign Manager (Steve Ryan) and his deputy (Milton Caine). I commend them both for their dedication to this task and support for the Candidates and Office Staff.
CDP Candidates represent CDP as a Party and the Lord Jesus as Christian people. We thank them and you for your involvement and wish each of you and your families a very Blessed Christmas.
