Licia Heath, WFEA Director shares her experience of what happens when you decide to run for a seat in Parliament.
Here is Licia’s thank you to all those who helped in her campaign. A big congratulations from us all on putting together a campaign, in record fast time, that did influence the issues discussed in the campaign and accurately highlighted what many of the voters in Wentworth really care about.
Licia will be sharing her knowledge and experience with WFEA supporters over the coming months as we hope it will help other women to stand in the coming NSW State Election [March 2019] or the next Federal Election.
