Kooyong residents will be warmly greeted by Mon’s smiling face and key campaign messages, as they pass through Camberwell junction this week. 

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we’ve turned the windows of 554 Burke Rd into giant glass billboards!

With thousands of people walking, riding or driving through Camberwell junction every day, the new sign will increase our reach – giving literal substance to our message that Mon offers a strong community-focussed alternative to the status quo. 

Plus, it looks great! Get down there and take a look. 

And while you’re there, why not take a snap in front of the sign, post it on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #Mon4Kooyong. 

Stay tuned next week for the great reveal of our campaign HQ signs on Glenferrie Rd!

Signs, Signs, Everywhere are Signs!

Our new fundraiser to buy 150 large (real estate size) signs and wrap 10 cars has gotten off to a flying start.

In less than a week, 29 large signs have gone up in Kooyong front yards.  With 20 more on order we are already one-third of the way to our goal of 150 large signs!

We’re blown away by the number of signs going up around Kooyong. But we want to make sure Mon’s face is out in front of the pack as we ramp up to election time. 

You can still sign up to get a big real-estate-style sign or the regular ‘corflute’.

Yes! Sign me up – large (real estate size)

Yes! Sign me up – regular (corflute size)

Your ongoing generosity is giving Mon the lift she needs to reach out to all Kooyong residents before the upcoming election. 

Could you please help us reach our goal to erect 150 signs and wrap 10 cars?

Spread the word!

Now’s the time to connect with friends, family and colleagues. Tell them about the campaign, share this email, or post about Mon on social media. 

Together, we can make a difference: a grassroots campaign in a changing climate, focusing on what really matters.

No cringy ukulele singalongs here. Just local people taking on community concerns. 


Note from Mon

Dear Team Mon,

Still laid low by COVID, I've been working from home this week and wistfully hearing reports of how great the Campaign HQ is looking, with so many people popping in to say hello and pick up their corflutes and t-shirts.  

During Iso, I’ve continued to have expert briefings and community meetings. These consultations have been vital in informing my policy positions, which are now on our website. The events of this past week demonstrate, yet again, the importance of a strong and independent federal anti-corruption commission and root and branch reform of political campaign donations in Australia. We all want honesty, transparency and integrity in government. We are not receiving those things now. 

We're less than 90 days out from the election, so the campaign will be ramping up from here. From Monday, I'll be out on the streets of Kooyong every day to meet with the electorate from now until the election. I'd love to see you out there.  

We'll be in the major shopping strips and also attending church services, choir rehearsals, art launches, BBQs in the park, street festivals, riding our bikes, walking our dogs, and lots of other fun activities in the community, spreading the word about the value of an Independent.

So…slip on your T-shirt, slop on your sunblock, and slap on your Mon4Kooyong caps (they’re coming!), and let's go win this election. 

Mon
