Jo-Ann is Labor candidate for Wollondilly in NSW election.
Jo-Ann is warm hearted, focused on fairness and seems to genuinely care about the people in her life. She doesn’t come across like a politician, her responses to questions aren’t canned or scripted and she seems open to talk about all issues and to speak about things that concern her.
I like that real people can run for parliament. Sometimes it feels as though it’s robots who represent us but I certainly didn’t feel like that with Jo-Ann. Even when talking about unions, which Jo-Ann has been a representative for, I didn’t feel as though I was getting the party line, rather a person who cares about equality.
Jo-Ann is optimistic about the chances for a change of government in the March 2019 election. I’m not Nostradamus and can’t predict the future, but what I can predict is that there will be more real mums like Jo-Ann who run for parliament in the future. If some of them are like Jo-Ann, we’ll be better as a state and as a nation.
Thanks for taking the time to meet with me Jo-Ann. I look forward to seeing how your predictions play out 🙂
