We've seen what the so-called Teal Independents can do to the two-party system.
The effect of the Teals on the crossbenches in the House of Representatives provides a powerful moral and political cohort, and is already waves in debate and legislation.
To support Kate Chaney as Curtin's representative, we will continue getting together in groups big and small to discuss community issues and let our elected representatives know what's important to us, in Perth and beyond.
This is not "politics as usual"!

Curtin Independent's spokesperson, Anthony Maslin, reflects on Kate Chaney's endorsement:
"I am fortunate to have come to know Kate after Curtin Independent approached Kate to consider being Curtin's community voice. As a resident with deep roots in the electorate and having grown up in a family where service to community is highly valued, Kate is perfectly placed to be Curtin's independent representative driving climate action and a smart sustainable economy. She is a business person, an innovative leader and a mother who is both authentic and compassionate."
Kate Chaney is a stellar individual who represents the values Curtin Independent is committed to – she is economically responsible and socially progressive.
Kate Chaney is the sensible centre, she will run on a platform driving real climate change action, pursuing forward-looking economic opportunities to drive a healthy, innovative economy and a commitment to integrity in politics and holding our politicians to account. Kate is committed to living her life with authenticity, compassion and inclusiveness.
Kate remains fiercely independent on behalf of the constituents of Curtin, but is recognised as a Teal in Canberra. Whatever you call her, she is committed to listen to and speak up for Curtin voters. Kate Chaney will make Curtin count in Canberra.
