2. Any Feldtman on growing up in Shepparton – she tweeted on the topic, then sent DM

 -I’m not sure who Murray’s Cathy is, but I’m certain I’ll volunteer in the campaign for them!

– So sad – when was SPC taken over? Want to do a personal piece as one who grew up there?

– CCA took over in 2005. Have a ‘local’ SPC post on my blog today — keen to do a researched one re:’turning independent’ though.

– Can I repost? Would need bio and mugshot

– With pleasure — will send all through to your Griffith email now. Thanks for asking — happy to get the story out there.
