Some of the thanks were given out yesterday, but I'm sure many of you are aware that two people in particular travelled most of those 8,007km right alongside the candidate -- Campaign Manager Carol Sparks (whom Barnaby praises below in the SBS video link, just watch it :) -- and Tony Grant, photographer extraordinaire, who ensured that more people than ever understand how and why we do what we do.
Then again we've had some absolute pre-poll stalwarts and booth-builders who have endured the stress and worry of ensuring people going into booths have a reminder to vote Greens -- Abi Sparks, Lucretia Grant, Badja Sparks, Steve Knott, Dora Koops, Peter O'Donohue, Pat Schultz, Ben Wynn, Bev Smiles, Bev Atkinson, Pete WIlls & Darrell Priest.
Not to mention New England Armidale/Tamworth Convenor Elizabeth O'Hara who organised three of the most significant events of the campaign -- our April tour of the region & launch with with Michael Osborne, the environmental book launch with Senator Lee Rhiannon, and the New England's memorial to John Kaye.
It's been an absolute honour to be your Greens candidate in New England for 2016. I look forward to celebrating the results with you in the days and months ahead as we continue to paint New England Green.
