City of Adelaide Federal Election Breakfast

7am, 2nd May 2019
Adelaide Town Hall

Australians will soon go to the polls in May to vote for the next Federal Government. While it is impossible to determine the exact outcome of the election, we already know the recently recast Federal seat of Adelaide will have a new elected member with the incumbent, the Hon Kate Ellis MP, choosing not to recontest the election.
Whether you’re a resident, worker, business owner, visitor or student in the City of Adelaide, this is your opportunity to learn about your local Federal candidates, who will speak to their party platforms and their vision for Adelaide. You will then be given an opportunity to ask questions of the candidates in a “Q&A” forum afterwards.

This is the only event being held for business and the community in the City of Adelaide to which all 2019 Federal Election candidates for the seat of Adelaide have been invited. Breakfast, hosted at the historic Adelaide Town Hall, will provide you the opportunity to meet your candidates and to ask questions of them during a professionally facilitated “Q&A” session – for as little as $10 for Early-Bird tickets.
