What a fantastic, ABC passionate, dedicated group of Friends we have! Despite the shock outcome of the
election, collectively, we have raised awareness of the need to defend our ABC, recruited new members,
engaged one-on-one with many people and have thus made an impact in the Blue Mountains and
the Hawkesbury. Many of us participated in our Friends Campaign activities, including Springwood
Foundation Day, the Candidates Forum, flyer distribution at stations, shopping centres, letter-boxes,
pre polling centres and polling booths on the 18th. A grand effort! We are delighted Susan Templeman retained the seat of Macquarie. Susan is pro ABC.
