    Jodie knocked on my door and sat on my cane chair on my front verandah.
    She was eager to make her pitch, but I offered her a glass of water and said you need not bother my dear.
    The fact that you’re pounding the footpath and your a young lady (forgive me for that terminology, I’m an old Territorian) you HAVE my vote. And she did.
    We need more women on the Council. Jimmy was my second vote for councillor as I believe Damien has earnt the right to push on.
    And finally, Jacinta represents our new age of reason. If we could only replicate her level of experience, understanding, balance and empathy that her parents Bess and David instilled in this young Territorian, woow.
    You GO girl. You are fit to perform and represent us on the National Stage. No risk.
