Tired of waiting for politicians to act? Become one!
Inspired by the call to activists to Don’t Get Mad – Get Elected, Ruth wrote Australia’s first national campaign guide in 2019. Get Elected, a step-by-step campaign guide to winning public office encourages women and diverse candidates to stand for politics at a local, state, and federal level. Aimed at independent candidates, Get Elected equips aspiring candidates, and their supporters, to plan a successful political campaign.
This practical guide draws on the successful Independent for Indi campaigns which Ruth helped coordinate, that saw Cathy McGowan elected to Federal Parliament in 2013 and 2016.
