Just received my ballot and wondered if anyone else had decided how to vote?

Me too, and I was wondering the same. I’d be grateful for any thoughts.

I'm strongly leaning towards Sharon.
Gerard is backed by Stammer.
Steve was being backed by the communist party and LOJ.

I have heard Sharon speak and she is very in to uniting workers across all sectors and encouraging them to work together rather than the current segregation by sector.

But I haven't seen them answer the stanisland question.

Steve Turner has a good track record for fighting for workers' rights and taking on big cases and winning. I will be voting for him Star

Steve Turner gets my vote too, he's particularly engaging with younger members, which is where the future of workers rights lies.

I just googled Sharon Graham and she's being plugged by the Socialist Workers Party who think she needs to concentrate more on Palestine! Anyone supported by LOJ would make me suspect that they don't know what a woman is. Suspect if I could vote I'd go for Coyne although I like some of Sharon Graham's manifesto.

I still haven't decided but the OJ support for Sharon puts me off

It's Steve that's backed by LOJ and the communist party. Being that they, the communist party, have been known to state biological facts and LOJ not so much. I'm not sure where Steve falls. Sharon is very pro maternity and paternity rights.
