Julia Zemiro Asks 'Who Cares?' — E5 — Penny Ackery
🎧 NEW PODCAST: Julia speaks with the independant candidate for Hume.
This is the 2nd last JZAC — and it's a good one. JZ has a conversation with Independent Candidate for Hume, Penny Ackery.
There is a feeling of change in country NSW.
Penny Ackery is a former special needs teacher who has been tasked by her community to represent the huge electorate of Hume.
At 17 240 sq km it spans from Boorowa in the west to Appin in the east, with Goulburn smack bang in the middle. It's currently held by the Minister for Emission Expansion, Angus Taylor. One of the most powerful ministers in the government.
But Penny has been hard at it, campaigning publicly since June 2021 — traveling the breadth of the electorate, listening, and consulting with folks about how to better represent them. It's the world's longest job interview.
JZ lives in the electorate next door and has been supporting Penny Ackery in her campaign, so if this chat sounds like two friends who are trying to make change in their communities — it's because it is.
Join Veronica Milsom, Mark Humphries, Gabbi Bolt, Lewis Hobba, Dan Ilic, Sami Shah and Paul McDermott for 10 Years* of A Rational Fear. June 4th Sydney Opera House. (*Runtime approx. 90min)
